The dried fruit and natural Clementine juice lends the perfect amount of sweetness, it almost tastes like candy. In my humble opinion, it doesn’t get much better than pistachios and pecans in the nut department and they go together so brilliantly in these super easy morsels. Full of goodness and a great source of protein and unsaturated fat; in moderation, they are an essential addition to my vegan diet.

  1. Place the nuts in a hand blender and blitz until coarsely ground.
  2. Add the goji berries, blueberries, date and desiccated coconut and blitz to form a fine rubble.
