Directions

Preheat the oven to fan 180C/200C/gas mark 6. Place the pecans on a baking tray and the sesame seeds in one corner. Roast for 5 minutes until you can just smell them. Cool slightly.

Reserve 1 tbsp. of the sesame seeds placing the rest in a food processor or blender and blitz until they form a soft spread. You will need to stop and scrape down the sides from time to time. Add the maple syrup and salt, blitz again and then transfer to a bowl and stir in the Chilean blueberries.

Form the mixture into walnut sized balls. Spread the reserved sesame seeds on a plate and roll the balls to cover with the seeds. Chill until firm for at least 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.Quick and easy to make these are a great healthy snack.
