Step 1 – Roughly chop the dates and place them in a food processor with the coconut oil and nut butter. Process until the mixture has a thin paste like consistency (around 30 seconds).
Step 2 – Pour the mixture in a bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon for a few minutes until it’s all mixed. The mixture should be firm and stick together.
