Date and Hazelnut Balls

Our date and hazelnut balls taste as sweet as they look. But don't be fooled by their size because these little balls pack a serious burst of energy.



Food Processor


250g dates, pitted
160g hazelnuts
100g ground almonds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1tbsp cacao powder


Makes 8 balls (4 portions)

Place the dates and half the hazelnuts in a bowl and cover with boiling water for 20 minutes.

Drain and place in a blender with the almonds, cinnamon and the cacao powder. Blitz to a thick paste.

Mould the mixture into 8 balls.

Finely chop the rest of the hazelnuts in the food processor.

Roll the balls in the hazelnuts and serve.
