  • Serves: 30
  • Preparation time: 20 minutes (excluding chill time)

Method

  1. Put the dates in a saucepan with 100 ml/4 fl oz boiling water. Cover with a lid, bring to the boil and simmer for 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer the soaked date mixture to a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth (or blend in a bowl using a stick blender).
  3. Place the peanut butter and date mixture in a saucepan and melt over a low heat until smooth. Remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients to the pan. Mix well, then shape into 30 equal-sized little balls. Place the balls on a plate and chill for 1 hour before eating.
  4. The balls will keep in the fridge, stored in an airtight container, for up to 5 days.
