Raw Roche’s also great dipped in melted chocolate!
200G medjool dates or regular dates/paste Makes approx 15 balls 80G hazelnuts (Roasted or roast in oven) 2 heaped tbsp cashew butter (or nut butter of your choosing) 1.5 tbsp cacao powder 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
If nuts not roasted- Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Place the hazelnuts on a baking tray and place into the oven for 10 minutes, giving them a toss half way. Remove from the oven and once cool rub them in a bit of kitchen towel to remove most of the skins. Place the hazelnuts in a food processor and blitz for 10-20 seconds until finely chopped. Add all the remaining ingredients and blitz again for about 30 seconds until the dates have broken down and the mixture is starting to stick together. Use a tablespoon and roll into balls. Wet your hands a little if it gets too sticky. Eat straight away or keep in an air tight container for 5-7 days!
If you want to roll them in chopped hazelnuts, roast an extra handful and then reserve them once they come out the oven. Roughly chop and then gently roll the balls in them.
