Recipe for Date Slice
To make the crust:
1.5 cups whole raw almonds
1.5 cups oats
1/2 tspn salt
10 dates, pitted, roughly chopped
1/4 cup coconut oil
Process all ingredients until it resembles a fine crumble, gradually adding dates and processing until blended and sticky. Set aside 3/4 cup of mixture for topping and press the remainder into a slice tin firmly.
For the filling:
25 dates, pitted, roughly chopped
1/2 cup water
Process the dates and water to make a paste. Spread paste onto base with wet spatula and then sprinkle on the last of the crumbly crust mixture, firming it down gently with fingers. Place in fridge for a couple of hours or overnight. Cut into squares and keep stored in fridge.
