+ 4 TBs finely crushed nuts or 2 TBs sesame seedscocoa powder or shredded coconut, for covering
Soak dates in hot water for 10 minutes, to soften. Remove flesh from pit, and tear into pieces (discard pit). Chop nuts into small pieces (I like to put them in a plastic bag and hit them with a mullet or a rolling pin. They more you hit, the finer the pieces).
In a bowl, mix dates, lemon juice, tahini and nuts, mashing everything with a fork. Add in cocoa powder, vanilla extract and sea salt, and stir well to combine. Taste - if you feel like you want a more chocolatey flavour, add a bit more cocoa.
With wet hands, form mixture into balls (small balls are what I prefer, and they work well as healthy truffles; bigger balls are more substantial energy treats). Roll in crushed nuts, sesame seeds, cocoa powder or shredded coconut.
These chocolate nut energy balls will keep in the fridge for a week, and in the freezer for a lot more.
