Choc Hazelnut Bliss Balls

Who needs Nutella when you have healthy choc-hazelnut protein balls!

Ingredients: 12067982_10206537974001139_1101698320_n

  • 300g Hazelnuts
  • 4 heaped tbsp raw cacao or coco powder, or to taste
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut, plus extra for rolling
  • 2 cups pitted dates, soaked in hot water for 15 minutes to soften
  • 2 tsp Pure vanilla extract

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 170C. Place hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast until fragrant and toasted, taking care not to burn. This brings out a richer hazelnut flavour. Place nuts in a clean tea towel and rub away skins as much as you can.

2. Place hazelnuts, coconut and cacao in a food processor. Pulse to a large crumb. Add dates and vanilla, and process until it comes together really smoothly.

3. Roll mixture into tight balls, then into coconut. Set in the fridge or freezer.
