These have been in the boys lunch boxes this week and have been very popular as their sweet treat!
As a gluten, nut, egg and dairy free treat these are fab as they are no bake and all you need to do is whizz the ingredients and squish them into a prepared tin.
200g pitted dates
50g shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons coconut oil
Line a square 18cm tin with baking parchment.
In a food processor, process the dates and sultanas, followed by the coconut and finally the vanilla and coconut oil. Allow the mix to begin to come together while you process.
Tip the date mix into the prepared tin, top with another piece of baking parchment and using the back of a spoon, squish into the edges with the parchment between the spoon and dates.
Pop the tin into the fridge and cool for an hour before cutting into squares, wrap the portions in baking parchment and keep in the fridge.
