Makes 16 balls
12 dried dates
50g sesame seeds
50g desiccated coconut (extra for coating if desired)
3 tbsp. cocoa powder
3 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. coconut or olive oil
Place all ingredients into a food processor until they are a crumbly texture and well combined. (Add a few drops of water if necessary to bind the mixture together, taking care not to over-moisten)
Put the mixture into a bowl and roll a tablespoon amount between your hands to form a smooth ball. Repeat the process to make 16 balls.
*(If you prefer to make energy bars rather than balls, line a small square tray with greaseproof paper, press the mixture down into the tray and chill for an hour before slicing)
Roll the balls in a bowl of desiccated coconut if desired
Refrigerate to make firm
