Method:
  1. Soak dates in boiling water
  2. Add oats, coconut, cashews, almonds, Pepitas, sunflower seeds, chia seeds & cacao powder to blender and pulse until nuts are crushed up (I prefer chunkier balls so I only pulse slightly but if you like smooth texture blend a lot)
  3. Drain dates and add to blender along with almond butter – blend until combined (if the mixture seems a bit dry or crumbly add a touch of water.
  4. Roll into balls and place in container in freezer or fridge to set
