Mix the rice, chia, sunflower seeds, almonds and flax in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
Heat the maple syrup and coconut oil gently in a small saucepan (to facilitate mixing). Whisk in the almond butter, coconut oil, sea salt, and spices. Pour wet ingredients over dry and mix thoroughly.
Press the ingredients into a small baking dish (11 x 7 or 8 x 8) firmly and evenly. Cover with a layer of saran or tin foil. Let sit for four hours or more, and then cut into bar shapes prior to serving. Alternately, you can dehydrate the bars in the baking dish, uncovered, for an hour or so to firm them up. Enjoy!
