Superfood Seed Bars

1/2 cup coconut nectar
1/3 cup raw tahini
1/4 cup raw coconut oil, warmed to liquid
1/2 tsp of ground vanilla bean powder
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup dried goji berries
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup black or white sesame seeds
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup cacao nibs (optional)
Pinch of celtic salt

In a blender, process coconut nectar, tahini, coconut oil, and vanilla until smooth and set aside.  In a medium size mixing bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients.  Add in coconut nectar mixture and mix well using your hands.  I recommend wearing gloves.  It'll be pretty sticky.  Take half of the mixture and place it in a food processor.  Process until the mixture breaks down into very small pieces.  Transfer it back to the mixing bowl and combine it with the remaining mixture using your hands.  Press mixture into an 8x8 inch pan lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap and place in the freezer until firm, about 30-60 min.  Cut bars into desired pieces and store in the refrigerator or freezer if you like them chewier.  This will keep for one to two months when cooled.
