Preheat oven to 165C/325F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Roughly chop the almonds and hazelnuts. In a large bowl, combine all nuts and seeds. Set aside.
In a small pan, combine dates, orange juice, and zest. Over medium heat, bring to boil and let simmer for a few minutes. Blend to a paste in a food processor. Mix the paste into the nuts and seeds until well coated.

Spread out onto baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 30 minutes or until dry. Turn clusters over half way through. If they seems to take longer than 30 minutes, check regularly afterwards, as they burn quickly past the half-hour mark. Let cool completely. Break up bigger clusters. Store in airtight container.
