  • 3 cups desiccated coconut (or shredded is fine)

  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil

  • 2 heaped tablespoons of cacao or cocoa powder

  • 1 handful of dates or 8 medjool dates - If using normal dates (not medjool) soak in hot water for about 10 mins, then drain.



  1. Blend on high until sticky (you may need to add a little water to get things going).

  2. Press into a lined dish. Sprinkle with desiccated coconut - optional.

  3. Refrigerate til set.

  4. Slice and serve. And yes, they do hold up in lunch boxes.
