50g cacao nibs
Preparation
Grind the hazelnuts if needed.
Preheat oven 160*
Prepare 2 oven trays
Place dates in a small bowl and pour boiling water over them. Leave to stand 5 minutes and then drain.
Put dates,hazelnuts, flour, seeds, cinnamon, salt,coconut oil, syrup, egg and vanilla into the bowl. Knead until well combined.
Stir through cacao nibs with a spatula.
Roll teaspoon size balls using wet hands. Press down with your hand and mark with a fork if you wish.

Cookie - what is the asterisk for at the oven temperature?  Does it indicate that it is the fan forced temperature?

Cuilidh, it's just a symbol we use to indicate degrees.  It doesn't mean fan forced.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

OK, thanks.  I will assume that it is a standard oven, not fan forced.

Thanks also, Cookie.  I had never noticed the asterisk used in that way before ... to me it always means there is a qualifying end note to give more information.  I will know in future.

You are correct in the use of the asterisk Marina. It was just me being lazy. (and thinking I had forgotten how to do the O sign.)

I remember Thermomixer teaching us how to do it many years ago cookie but Iím sure the asterisk is much quicker.  If I donít do something frequently I forget how to do it !

Same here Judy. It's like the links Cream Puff taught us to do, I don't think I could do that anymore. I'm usually on the ipad so it is harder there.
