  4. Add maple syrup, coconut oil, 1 tbsp water and dates to MC on, 5 seconds, speed 8 (or stop sooner if the mixture comes together quicker)
  5. Test mixture by squeezing a small portion in your hand, if it holds together quite well you can continue to the next step. If you feel it needs a touch more moisture, you can add a tablespoon of the date water leftover from soaking.
  6. Tip mixture into another bowl/jug and with wet hands either roll into small to medium size balls as pictured, or press into the Thermomix snack bar moulds. If your hands become sticky, wet them again. If you roll into balls, you can then roll again into more coconut, but this is optional. Some people do this in a bowl, others put the coconut and protein balls into a zip lock bag to make it quicker.
