Place the dates, cocoa and almond butter into a food processor and whizz into a paste.

Add the pistachios and almonds and whizz again until the nuts are finely chopped. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the brown rice syrup and orange rind, and mix again until everything is combined.

Roll heaped teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Roll each ball in coconut to coat. Store the date balls in an airtight container in the fridge.
