1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Prepare a 9×9-inch baking dish by spraying it with nonstick spray and lining with parchment paper, leaving excess over the sides for easier removal.

2. Spread oats, nuts, and flax seeds out in an even layer on a other baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 5-8 minutes to toast oats and seeds, watching closely for the oats to just start to brown and become fragrant. 

3. In a small sauce pan, bring honey, coconut oil, and brown sugar to a simmer over medium heat. Stir to dissolve sugar for 2-4 minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla extract, and set aside.

4. In a large salad bowl, combine, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the oat, nut and seeds mixture, and pour in the honey mixture. Stir until everything is well coated.

5. Press into your prepared 9×9-inch square baking dish using the edges of the parchment paper to help. Place in the refrigerator to chill for an hour before removing from the baking dish to cut into bars. Serve at room temperature, enjoy!
