It's a little more time consuming than a throw-everything-in-theprocessor-and-voila! but if you have the time and can eat nuts, give it a go! You won't be sorry--and there's absolutely no baking or dehydrating involved.

1 cup gluten-free oats
1/3 cup raw cacao nibs
1/3 cup nondairy mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup cocoa roasted pumpkin seeds (or plain raw pumpkin seeds)
1. Grind cashews to a flour texture; set aside.
2. Grind almonds to a fine flour, add to cashews.
