Before you start this recipe have a look at your dates. If they look at all dry, soak them for 20 minutes in a little boiling water. You won't need to do this if you're using medjool dates.
Blend the oats in a food processor until they're the consistency of flour. Add 100g berries, 50g desiccated coconut, 175g chopped dates and 1 tsp vanilla extract and blend until fully combined.
Roll the mixture into 12 balls and roll each ball in desiccated coconut until fully coated.
Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes then place in the fridge until you're ready to serve them.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days. Can be frozen.
