Directions

Mix together all dry ingredients in large bowl including chopped Medjool dates.

Mix together all wet ingredients (honey or brown rice syrup, melted coconut oil and peanut butter).

Add wet to dry and stir really well to combine.

Place mixture into a lined 9 * 9 inch tray; I line mine with baking paper and grease with a little melted coconut oil.

Spread mixture evenly using the back of a spoon and press it down to keep it nice and compact! Place into the fridge for three hours before slicing.

Store in the fridge in seal tight container for up to one week, possibly more or the freezer for up to one month.
