Perfect Paleo Praline

Active Prep Time: 20min
Inactive Prep Time: 1-2hrs
Yields 1 8x8 pan of candy that you can cut whatever size you desire

1/2C Nuts (I used chopped walnuts, but I think pecans would also be wonderful!) 
1C Honey
1/2C Coconut Oil (if you can use butter, you may sub butter here) 
1/2C Coconut Cream Concentrate 
1/4C Almond Butter
2t Cinnamon 
1t Vanilla Extract
1/8t Salt

Out of the 1/2C Coconut Oil, use 1T to coat the nuts with in a non-stick pan under medium heat. Roast nuts while stirring (they can burn) until the nuts fill the kitchen with a nice aroma and they start to get a little brown. Once this happens, add the Honey to the pan and mix well. Once the honey starts to bubble, add the rest of the Coconut Oil, Coconut Cream Concentrate and Almond Butter and incorporate (I used a spatula and it blended nicely). Add your cinnamon, vanilla and salt and then turn the stove to low heat and simmer for 3min.  Line a whole 8x8 pan with parchment paper- just press the paper down into the bottom and insure that the sides of the pan are lined as well.  Pour your mixture into the pan and you can use a spoon to make sure that the nuts are spread evenly throughout the pan. Place the pan in the freezer for 1-2hrs. Remove from freezer and use large kitchen knife to cut into pieces.  Store in freezer until you serve it.  They are amazing!
