Mix your 3 cups of nuts and or seeds in a bowl to combine. Scoop out one cupful and blend on high until it mostly forms a powder or flour, leaving in a few chunky bits.
Scoop out another cupful onto a chopping board and chop these for a mix of textures. Add all back to the bowl and stir.
Add the coconut flakes, and the dried fruit and stir.
In a small saucepan on a low heat, gently melt the coconut oil, nut butter or tahini and sweetener together stirring to blend. Add vanilla extract, the pinch of salt and cinnamon powder to taste.
If using raw cacao, only stir it in a spoonful at a time and taste to see if you need more sweetener. Allow the liquid mix to cool before adding it into the dry mix.
Stir the lot to combine.
If using the choc chips version, add these last. Once all is combined, pour into a glass dish, and press it all down with the back of a spoon, until it looks solid and even.
Put the lid/cover on and allow it to set in the fridge for about a couple of hours before cutting into bars.
