  • 1 tbsp (25g) date paste (made with 15g or approximately 2-3 dates). See Method.
  • 1 sachet Meritene STRENGTH & VITALITY chocolate shake
  • 1 tbsp (10g) ground super seed/nut/berry mix (e.g. flax, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame seeds, goji berries available as pre-mixed pack from supermarkets)
  • 1 tbsp (10g) chopped toasted hazelnuts
  • 2 tbsp jumbo oats
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 tsp chopped stem ginger, dried sour cherries, raisins or other dried fruit
  • Coating: cocoa powder, raw cocoa nibs or chopped nuts



  1. Date paste: Finely chop the dates, place in a bowl and barely cover with boiling water. (Very soft dates, e.g. Medjool type dates may need less water.) Place in microwave for 20 seconds. Stir and leave to cool.
  2. Mix all other ingredients in a bowl with a fork; be patient while it comes together to form a thick paste.
  3. Add in the date paste and work together with a fork.
  4. Use two spoons or wet hands to roll the mixture into two balls and leave them as they are or roll them in your choice of coating.
  5. Enjoy immediately or store in the fridge for later!
