Step 1

Soak the dates for 10 minutes, then drain.

Step 2

Blend the dates in a food processor or powerful blender until they form a paste like consistency.

Step 3

Add the oats, desiccated coconut, vanilla, cacao powder and melted coconut oil, then blend to combine. If your mixture is too thick, you can add a little coconut oil to help it blend.

Step 4

Add the raw almonds and blend until the almonds break into chunks.

Step 5

Once blended line a 17 by 12 cm tin with baking paper and flatten the mixture firmly. You can use a different size tin but this may affect how many or how thick your bars are.

Step 6

Leave to set in the fridge for three hours or longer.

Step 7

Once set, cut into 8 bars and tuck in, or keep them in the fridge to enjoy later.
