These little bites are great following a run, hike or day at the office. With good fats from the nuts and seeds, and natural sugars from the dried fruit and honey,  these treats enable your body to recover and have energy for the next thing on your “Maybe To Do” list.

½ cup toasted chopped walnuts

½ cup dried apricots or other dried fruit

½ cup raisins

1 ½ cups peanut butter

3 tablespoons honey

½ teaspoon sea salt

Zest of 1 orange

Handful of dried coconut

Mix all ingredients into a bowl. Mold into 1-inch balls and store in an airtight container in the freezer or fridge for up to one week.
