Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, stir together for almonds, sunflower seeds, coconut flakes, and pumpkin seeds.
  • In small saucepan, stir together your choice of nut butter, coconut oil, collagen, and erythritol, and heat for 2-3 minutes over low heat until everything is smooth and combined.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract, cinnamon, and sea salt.
  • Pour over the nut and seed mixture and stir.
  • Add egg whites and stir together well until all the dry ingredients are coated well with wet ingredients.
  • Transfer to the prepared baking pan and use a spatula to press down firmly into a flat, even layer.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until the edges are lightly browned.
  • Let it cool completely. Use the parchment paper to remove from the pan, and use a sharp knife to slice into 12 even bars.
