In a food processor place the nuts & seeds, blitz until they are fine and crumbly. Then add all other ingredients and blitz until you have a crumble that sticks together. You may need to stop and scrap edges for all ingredients to combine properly. Then scoop mixture into a bowl and roll into bite sized balls. Coat the balls in extra coconut or some finely processed pepita seeds. Place on a tray and refrigerate, once set store in a large jar. These will keep for 3-4 weeks in the fridge – if they last that long :-).
