In a bowl, add the sunflower seeds, flax meal, chia seeds, maca powder and salt.
In a food processor, grind the almonds to a coarse consistency. Add almonds to the mix of seeds and powder.
In a saucepan, add the local honey, coconut oil and almond butter. Stir over low heat until all ingredients are combined and smooth. Pour this mixture into the bowl with the rest. Mix well.
Pour the final mixture into the prepared hotel pan. Cover and let set in refrigerator over night. Cut into squares and serve!
