12 dates, pitted and halved
½ cup warm water
¼ cup almond butter
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup dried blueberries
¼ cup almonds, chopped
¼ cup desiccated coconut
¼ cup chia seeds
1 Line a square baking pan with parchment paper and grease the paper with coconut oil.
2 Combine the dates and warm water in a small bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes until the dates are soft. Drain and dry with a paper towel.
3 Place the dates and almond butter in a food processor and mix until a paste is formed. Transfer this to a large mixing bowl.
4 Add the oats, blueberries, almonds, coconut and chia seeds to the date mixture and mix well.
