  • 1 cup nuts of choice (I use a mix)
  • 1 1/2 cup any unsweetened dried fruit (figs, cherries, dates, apricots, etc. or a mixture)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Combine ingredients in food processor until uniform. Wrap whole mixture in Saran wrap and refrigerate for an hour or so. Remove and roll into balls or “smush” into a pan to make bars. Best stored in the fridge.
