DIRECTIONS

  • Combine dates and water in a small saucepan and place over medium heat.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often, for 15-20 minutes, until very soft and falling apart.
  • Drain, reserving the liquid, and place into a blender with honey, oil and salt. Puree until very very smooth (you are looking for a paste consistency).
  • Mix together ground flax and cocoa in a small dish and add to the blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth and all one "paste" - add 1-2 tbsp of the saved date water if necessary, but you need to be able to form the mixture into balls.
  • Place sesame seeds in a shallow bowl or plate and roll small balls of the paste in them to coat.
  • Place balls on a plate and chill 1-2 hours before enjoying.
  • Store, covered, in the fridge, or freeze up to 1 month.
