300g pitted dates

Pinch of bread soda

120ml coconut oil

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

500g rolled oats

200g cashew nuts broken into smaller pieces (or could use seeds for “nut free”)

2 bananas mashed

1 teaspoon of cinnamon


Preheat your oven to 150 degrees Celsius 

Put dates in a pot with pinch of bread soda and enough water to cover them. Cooke them for about 20 minutes until mushy. Then add coconut oil, vanilla extract and mushy bananas, and place mixture in a good blender. Pour mixture into a bowl and add cinnamon, oats and nuts (or seeds). Spread the mixture on a 

a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 25 minutes, then allow to cool in the tray, before slicing into bars. I packed them all away in a zip lock bag for the freezer
