Picture of Preparation

Soften the dates by pouring hot water into a bowl with dates and set it aside for 15 minutes. Once the dates are dry, drain most of the water but leave a little behind.

Dump the soaked dates (with the extra water), a tablespoon of hemp hears and cinnamon to taste into a food processor or a blender if you don't have a food processor.

Blend everything into a paste-like consistency. If it's too runny then add more dates. If it's too thick, add more water.

Dump all the contents onto a board, shape into balls or rolls and cover them with shredded coconut.
