Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Place the Medjool dates, walnuts and hazelnuts in a food processor and blend until well combined. Add the protein powder, cacao powder and coconut oil and blend again until a dough begins to form. If the mixture looks and feels a bit dry, add a little water. The mixture should feel a little sticky.
