Ingredients

  • 3 cups raw pumpkin seeds rinsed + dried
  • 1 cup raw pepitas pumpkin seeds minus the shells
  • 1 cup pistachios
  • 2 tablespoons ground or whole flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tablespoon fresh coffee grounds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon all-spice
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet or dark chocolate, melted (use milk chocolate if you prefer)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Spread the raw pumpkin seeds (not the pepitas) on a greased baking sheet. Roast the pumpkin seeds for 15 minutes to dry them out. Remove from the oven. Leave on the pan.
  • To the pan with the pumpkin seeds, add the pepitas, pistachios, flax, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, coffee grounds (I used 2 tablespoons), salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and all-spice. Toss well, making sure all the seeds are evenly coated. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring 2 or 3 times during cooking until the pumpkin seeds are golden in color. Remove from the oven and using the back of a rubber spatula push the seeds into an even layer about 1/2 inch thick. Allow the seeds to cool completely (as they cool they will harden). Break up into clusters.
  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or on the stove. Carefully dip the clusters into the melted chocolate. Place on the prepared baking sheet and if desired sprinkle with coffee grounds + sea salt. Repeat with the remaining clusters.
  • Place the pan in the fridge for 10 minutes or until the chocolate is hardened. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place (or in the fridge) for up to two weeks.
