2cupsmixed nuts and seedsI like pistachios, almonds, walnuts, flaxseed, sunflower seeds and pepitas
2cupsdried fruitI used equal amounts dried cranberries, dates and figs. Chop the larger fruits so everything is about the same size.

1tablespoonalmond or peanut butter
1pinchsea salta finishing salt like Maldon’s is nice
Place 1/4 cup pistachios in a food processor and process until finely chopped (just short of a powder). Combine with sesame seeds in a small bowl and set aside.
Add nuts, seeds, and dried fruit to processor bowl and process until finely chopped. Add zest, nut butter, maple syrup and salt and pulse several more times. When the mixture is ready, it will begin to clump together and pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Remove mixture to a bowl and knead mixture briefly to consolidate. Pick up about 1 heaping tablespoon of the mixture and squeeze tightly in one palm. Use your fingers to compress the mixture into a ball. Drop in the pistachio-sesame seed bowl and roll to coat.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes to set. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
