Cocoa protein bliss balls

They see me rollin'.. Bliss balls are seriously the best thing I've ever decided to make here in the Christmas time! They're so rich, crunchy and soft on the same time, they are healthy Christmas treats and taste much better than the unhealthy kind, in my opinion. But you can try out for yourself and let me know what you think!
Unfortunately, I ate half of the batch in the making, so I don't know how many balls you'll get out of this recipe and I also don't know how long they last in the fridge because I ate them all by my self in two days (don't judge me).
These babies are seriously addicting and I can't wait to make another batch really soon. It's really setting my self-discipline on a hard test though, but it's just so hard not to reach out for another one when they're SO delicious, packed full of vitamins, proteins and all things healthy. I'm drooling just by looking back at the pictures now.
Here's the recipe:

400 g juicy dates
2 ripe bananas
150 g oats
50 g coconut flour
2-3 tbsp nut butter (I used crunchy peanut butter)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp carob powder (or 2 tbsp cocoa powder)
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (or 1 tbsp cocoa powder)
100 g chopped nuts (I used hazel- and walnuts)
Remove the stone from the dates and put them in a blender with the bananas and a splash of water to help it blend. When it's blended into a caramel paste, pour into a bowl and stir in the nut butter. Add the cocoa-, carob- and protein powder and mix well. When it's combined, add oats, coconut flour and chopped nuts until it's firm enough to roll balls.
Now, it's finally time to roll the balls into exactly the size you want. To stop them stick to everything, roll them in coconut flour, oats, chopped nuts or cocoa powder after you shaped them round with your hands. Put them in a box, a bag or even a jar and store them in the fridge. Maybe you can make them last more than two days? If so, I'm really impressed.
There's nothing else left to say than merry Christmas and ENJOY!
