Ingredients
Base:
2 cups nuts
1/2 cup flax meal (flax seeds ground in a blender or spice grinder)
1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened and organic if possible)

3/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tsp organic vanilla extract
Topping:
dairy free chocolate chips (melted)
Instructions

Place nuts or seeds, flax meal, coconut, seed or nut butter and salt in the bowl of a food processor.
Process until the nuts or seeds are ground into a coarse meal.
Melt coconut oil over low heat. If the temperature of your home is around 76 degrees, you can skip this step and add the oil directly to the food processor as it will be soft enough to process easily.
Add coconut oil, and vanilla to processor bowl and process until well combined to form a thick, yet crunchy paste.
Press the mixture into an 8×8 square pan
Place in refrigerator to chill.
While bars are chilling, melt the chocolate, top the bars with chocolate.
Press the topping onto the chilled bottom layer.
