Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ cups dates - soaked for 10 minutes
  • cups oats
  • cups desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil - melted
  • cups raw almonds

Instructions
 

  • Soak the dates for 10 minutes, then drain.
  • Blend the dates in a food processor or powerful blender until they form a paste like consistency.
  • 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.
  • Add the raw almonds and blend until the almonds break into chunks.
  • 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.
  • Leave to set in the fridge for three hours or longer.
  • Once set, cut into 8 bars and tuck in, or keep them in the fridge to enjoy later.

Notes

You can sub the Bioglan cacao boost powder for another brand of raw cacao powder.
