  • 3 cups dried black mission figs, soaked overnight, hard stems removed, and drained
  • 1 heaping tsp. ground cinnamon

  • ¼ tsp. Celtic sea salt
  • half a lemon, peeled, seeds removed and chopped
  • 1 tsp. lemon rind, finely chopped

Pulse hazelnuts, almonds, and half of the pumpkin seeds in a food processor until they are broken into small pieces. Transfer to a big bowl. Add the other half of the pumpkin seeds to the mix. In a food processor blend soaked figs, lemon, lemon rind, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt until the mixture resembles thick smooth paste. When ready, add it to the nut mix, and mix well with the spoon.
