Date Nut Balls (gRAWnola)

1/2 cup Walnuts
1/2 cup Pecans
1/4 cup flax meal (flax seed or any seed of choice)
1/2 cup chopped Dates
1/2 cup chopped Figs

This recipe does not have to be exact, in fact you can use raisins instead of dates, or dehydrated blueberries and cherries instead of Figs.
The mixture makes up to 12 medium-sized "cookies" or "balls". For this recipe you may use a dehydrator, oven, or simply eat the mixture raw.
With these five ingredients, process in a blender or food processor into a granola consistency. First process the nuts and flax meal into a flour consistency, which will make it easier to process with the dehydrated fruit. Blend the walnuts, pecans, flax meal, then chopped dates and figs. Add other dehydrated fruit of choice. Add vanilla, orange zest, or any flavoring.
Dehydrate for no more than 2 hours. I usually dehydrate the mixture for 45 minutes just to heat up the cookie.

I used store-bought Walnuts and Pecans, however I could have used the ones I foraged in November. I find cracking nuts frustratingly time consuming for so little nut, which is why I used store-bought.
