Ingredients: raw pumpkin seeds, raw sunflower seeds, chia seeds, Deglet pitted dates, sea salt, vanilla extract, coconut milk.
This one uses a crazy mix of nuts (I think it’s fine to just go with the mix you’ve already got in the cupboard though) and requires some pre-prep by soaking them for at least 2 hours, or overnight. The payoff is worth it though! Gina recommends milk or cream but that would make this Primal only so use a non-dairy substitute if you are strictly Paleo.
