  1. Soak dates in hot water for about 10 minutes or until softened, then drain.
  2. While the dates are soaking, place granola in a food processor and pulse until crumbly. Don’t overdo it! You want to keep some texture. Remove 1/4 cup of the blitzed granola from the food processor and set this aside. 
  3. Add dates, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt to the food processor and blitz until ingredients start to stick together. Add chocolate chips and pulse until combined.
  4. Remove mix from food processor and roll into bite-sized balls. Press a hazelnut into the centre of each and form the ball around it.
  5. Put the reserved granola in a shallow dish and roll each ball in it to coat. Refrigerate for about 1/2 an hour to set fully.
