  • ½ cup (30g) shredded coconut

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients, except dates and goji berries.
  3. Melt coconut oil and nectar together and pour over dry mix along with the flax oil. Stir well, ensuring everything is fully coated.
  4. Spread out on to tray and bake until golden brown.
