Soak the dates in boiling water for 15 minutes. Drain well and set aside.
Blend the almonds in a blender until they are cut up into small pieces. Add the remaining ingredients, including the dates. Pulse the ingredients until combined. You may need to stop the blender and push the ingredients down from the sides with a spatula.
Squeeze a spoonful of ingredients together in your hand and push firmly into a ball shape. You can either roll these in coconut or leave as is.
Store in the fridge and enjoy for a delicious, tasty snack.
You can add one spoon of almond flour to the mix if you need it a little dryer.
