- 1 cup almonds
- 1/2 cup raw peanuts
- 1/3 - 1/2 cup vegan choc. chips
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds (raw)
- 1/2 cup quick oats (or whole oats)
- 3/4 cup rasins
- 8 dried apricots
- 2 - 3 tbsp lemon peel
- 1/2 cup honey style sweeter (maple syrup / rice syrup etc)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place almonds in food processor and blend (covering ears!) until
chopped fairly fine. Add peanuts, choc. chips, rasins, apricots
and blend again. Add sunflower seeds, oats and lemon peel and blend
on high until mixture begins to thicken and turn lumpy. Slowly pour
in sweetener and blend until mixture won't turn in blender any longer.
Spread a layer of the shredded coconut in the botton of a pan,

into the pan, covering with more coconut and pressing it firmly
into the mix.

and cutting into squares.
