The Basic Raw Ball

1 cup oats
¼ cup cashew nuts or nut of your choice
1 tbsp raw cacao

In a clean dry food processor, blitz together the oats, nuts and raw cacao until fine. Pour the oat mixture into the bowl with the dates and add the nut butter. With your hands or a wooden spoon, mix until well combined.
