Sellou Recipe

 Sellou, the Moroccan Energy Mix but with a healthy twist.Moroccan sellou, also called sfouf or less commonly zmita, is a rich, nutty confection of ground fried almonds, ground toasted unhulled sesame seeds, and browned flour. Flavored with cinnamon and anise and sweetened with honey or sugar, sellou might be presented as a powdery, decorated cone; as a rounded, molded mound; or as compact bite-sized balls or squares. Butter, which adds flavor and binds the ingredients, can be adjusted in quantity to vary the texture from dry and sandy to moist and pliable
