This is possibly the BEST thing I have EVER made, Paleo or otherwise. Not only did it get the thumbs up from the 7-year-old, but my dad said I finally made something Paleo that he and my mom really like! 😀
This is so good as a snack paired with a glass of almond milk, or in a bowl with almond milk poured over it. I went light on the coconut for our taste but more could be added, along with other kinds of nuts.

1 cup almond flour/meal
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup grass-fed butter (or coconut oil)

2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/3 cup raw sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Melt butter or oil on medium heat. Combine almond flour, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl and add melted butter/oil, honey, and vanilla; blend well. Mix in shredded coconut, seeds, and nuts (additional nuts of other varieties can also be added). Spread mixture onto parchment paper on a baking sheet.
