Baklava Bars (paleo)

One of my all time favorites is the Greek dessert Baklava!.......While being paleo, phyllo dough is a no no......but this bar at least gives you the nutty, honey flavor of it.......And this is very easy to put together and make....No baking involved you just have to toast the nuts and add the almond flour and then honey to your skillet!....Easy peasy.....Here is what I did....Enjoy!!
1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts
1/2 Cup Chopped Macadamia Nuts
2 Tablespoons Coconut oil
1/2 Cup Almond Meal
1/4 Cup Honey
1/4 Cup Almond Butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
sprinkle of cinnamon
Add the nuts to a skillet with the coconut oil
toast a few minutes and then add the almond meal and salt until mixed in
Mix in the honey until its bubbly
remove and let cool a few minutes
Place mixture in a bowl and add the almond butter
vanilla and coconut flour
Pour in a 8x8 dish and flatten
Put dish in fridge for 30 minutes before cutting into bars
You can wrap each bar in plastic wrap and keep in fridge if you like
They are best if kept in fridge due to the coconut oil
