Throw your nuts into the food processor. Blitz briefly to keep some rough chunks of nuts (this is my preference, or you can blits till you create more of a nut powder) Put in large bowl.
Add the rest of the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix together.
Chop the dates up into fine pieces (don’t forget to remove stones!) Scatter around the large bowl.
Melt coconut butter and coconut oil briefly together in the microwave. (obviously, this depends on what temp it is where you are living, they might be melted already.) Pour evenly over ingredients in the bowl.
Mix all ingredients with a spoon.
Now get your hands dirty! Shape into balls, and pop in the fridge to harden!
* use whatever nuts are in your cupboard/whatever your heart desires!
* you can throw all this into a food processor, or you can chop everything up by hand for a more rustic look. Personally, I like chopping up the dates and walnuts by hand. And blitzing the almonds so that there are still a few chunks left. My favourite thing about biting into rustic energy balls is that there can be a surprising crunch of half an almond or a nice big chunk of a date.
