Ingredients
  • 25 g/ 1 oz Cashew nuts
  • 25 g/ 1 oz Hazelnuts nuts
  • 50 g/ 2 oz Pistachio nuts
  • 200 g/ 7 oz Soft pitted dates
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder

Instructions
  1. Put the nuts into a food processor and process until chopped medium - not too finely though
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to process until a sticky dough is formed - you may need to scrape down the sides of the food processor a couple of times
  3. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions - approximately 30g in weight each. Using your hands roll the dough into smooth balls
  4. If desired, cover the balls by rolling in cocoa powder or coconut
