Makes 20 squares

• 1 cup almonds, soaked overnight, discard water
• 2 cups dates, soaked for a couple of hours (1 cup for topping)
• 1 cup of filtered water
• ½ cup carob powder
• 2 cups coconut meat or desiccated coconut

1. Add the soaked almonds, 1 cup of dates, filtered water and carob. Blend in a food processor until smooth.

2. Mix in the coconut, then press the mix into a biscuit tray to about 2 cm thickness. Leave covered in the fridge for 2-3 hours to firm up.

3. For the topping: process the second cup of dates in blender with a little water until smooth like a cake icing and spread over the set mix. Sprinkle with some coconut or other nuts of your choice. Rest in the fridge, then cut into small squares to serve.
