I have Derek's lovely sister to thank for this recipe! The only thing that I changed was the addition of liquid peppermint stevia and a little less maple syrup!

1 ½ cups oat flour*

2 cups raw walnuts

3 Tablespoons melted coconut oil

5-8 drops of Sweet Leaf liquid stevia (Peppermint) or more depending on your personal minty desire

Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper (I didn't do this, but depending on your pan you might need to.

*If you need to make oat flour, place 1 ¾ cups rolled oats in a food processor and process until powdery (I bought mine).

2. Place oat flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a mixing bowl and whisk together.

3. Place walnuts in a food processor and blend into a fine meal.  Add oil, maple syrup and vanilla and process until mixture has the consistency of natural nut butter.
