How to make these bars (how to prepare it)

  • Preheat the oven to 200°F (90°C). Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  • Place the dates in a food processor and pulse until chopped and a rough texture forms. Add the remaining ingredients and process for a minute, to form a crumbly dough.
  • Place the dough onto the baking sheet and roll out into a 6x10.5” (15x25cm) rectangle, and cut the dough into 12 even-sized bars.
  • Bake the bars in the hot oven for 30 minutes, just to dry them out a little. Then remove from the oven and set on a wire rack to cook to room temperature before enjoying.
  • Store the bars in an airtight container, in the refrigerator, for up to 1 month.
