  1. Tip the hazelnuts into a small frying pan, and cook over a low heat for 3-5 minutes, shaking frequently, until the nuts are lightly browned. Leave to cool.
  2. Add the roasted hazelnuts to a food processor and whiz until fine. Tip half onto a large plate. Add the remaining ingredients and whiz until a thick paste forms. Using your hands, roll the paste into small walnut-sized balls, then roll the balls in the ground hazelnut until well coated. Refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Tip: To make the texture smoother, grind the chia and flaxseeds before adding to the mixture.
