Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees. Grease a 8 x 8  baking pan.

Whisk together flour, oats, cinnamon,baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat coconut oil, almond butter, maple syrup and honey together until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add flour mixture and mix until combined. Gently mix in nuts, flax seeds  and berries.  Press mixture into prepared baking dish, being sure to press to flatten and  smooth out. Bake 30 minutes exactly at 350 degrees.

When you remove the pan from the oven place chocolate pieces on top to melt and  smooth when melted. The melted chocolate is your option,  Jeff especially loves them this way.
