Medjool dates lend a soft, fudgy flavour to these nut and fruit bars. Eat on the run for breakfast, or for a mid‑afternoon snack. They store in an airtight container for up to a month.
- 250g medjool dates pitted
- 80g shelled pistachios
- 25g rolled oats
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp water
- 60g desiccated coconut
- Blitz the dates in a food processor until they have formed a rough paste. Add the shelled pistachios, oats, honey, water and around half of the desiccated coconut. Blend again until thoroughly mixed.
- Tip the mix out of the blender on to your work surface and roll it into a rectangle about 2cm thick. Cut the rectangle into 10 equal bars. Put the remaining desiccated coconut into a tub or plate, then roll the bars around in it one at a time until they have all been evenly coated with coconut.
