place seeded dates and tart cherries in a bowl with hot, boiled water, and let soak for 5-7 mins to soften.
while the dates and cherries are soaking, lightly toast cardamom and fennel powder, and almond slivers over medium heat for about 45 seconds. this will add a more robust flavor and release the essential oils.
in a food processor, add the toasted sesame, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, flax seeds, almond slivers, coconut oil, salt, and spices. Pulse into the mixture is an even crumble, but still have a little bite. Coarser than almond flour without large chunks. Be careful not to turn it into a fine powder or butter.
drain the water completely from the dates and cherries. Then add them to the food processor. process until the mixture comes together and you can form a ball with a small amount. If adding honey to make this sweeter, do so at this time. try to avoid adding water as this will make the truffles less shelf stable. depending on your food processor, you may need to process in 2 step and mix by hand.
remove the blade. if desired coat hands with a coconut oil prior to rolling the mixture into balls. place each ball into a bowl of hemp seeds and toss. if hemp seeds do not stick to the balls, toss the balls in a bit of melted coconut oil, about 1/2 tsp should do it and then toss with hemp seeds. Make balls the size of your choice.
