cup unsweetened coconut flakes
tablespoons hemp seeds
cup macadamia nuts
pinches himalayan salt
- Chop macadamia nuts to bite size pieces. Set aside in a bowl.

- Add in coconut, nuts, spirulina and hemp seeds into the melted cacao and mix until all well covered.
- Act quickly as the cacao hardens with each moment.
- Bring out the cookie sheet and transfer mixture quickly onto the paper and spread evenly. Keep mixture close together so that clumps form but are still flat.
