  1. Roast the hazelnuts
    First up roast the hazelnuts. Preheat the oven to 165C (330F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the nuts on the baking sheet and roast them in the oven for 15 minutes, tossing halfway. Leave them cool down slightly.
  2. Prepare the dough
    Transfer the roasted hazelnuts to a food processor and blend into a fine meal. Then, add the pitted dates, cocoa powder and hemp seeds. Mix to combine. Add water by the tablespoon, only as much as necessary for the mixture to form a dough that holds together.
  3. Once well combined, scope out heaping 1 tbsp amounts and form small balls using your hands. Repeat until you have used up all the mixture.
  4. Optionally, roll in extra hemp seeds.
  5. How to store
    Store in a covered container in the fridge up to 1 week or in the freezer up to 1 month.
