  • 1/2 C. almonds, chopped
  • 1/3 C. agave nectar
  • 1/4 C. Crisco® Refined Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 C. light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 tsp. Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

  • 2 Tbsp. dried goji berries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Toast almonds and oats on a parchment lined baking sheet for 8 minutes, mixing the nuts and oats halfway through. Remove, cool, and set aside 2 Tbsp. of almonds for later. Then transfer to a large bowl and add 1/4 C. pineapple, 1/4 C. goji berries, coconut, and chia seeds

Once ready, remove the block from the refrigerator and cut into 10 bars.
