In a high-powered food processor, add the following ingredients: date paste (broken into chunks), cashews, collagen peptides, coconut flakes, cocoa powder, salt, cardamon and orange blossom water.  Pulse until the mixture is smooth.

Using a cookie scoop, form balls of Date and Cashew Protein Balls. Release into the palm of your hand and roll between the palms of your hands to make rounder.

Make topping by combining coconut flakes and roasted sesame seeds in a small bowl.  Roll the balls into the topping and press topping lightly for better adhesion.
