In a medium bowl, start by mixing the flaxseed and maple syrup. Let it sit for about 5 minutes to thicken.
Continue adding the other ingredients in the same bowl (don't add the chocolate chips yet).
After adding the date paste, mix with a fork to make it easier for the date paste to break down. You could continue to mash with a fork.
Add the chocolate chips and finish mixing and bring all the ingredients together evenly.
Roll into half-inch bites. Or if you prefer roll bigger bites.
Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes.
