Essential ingredients

280g dates, pitted

3 tbsp (40g) coconut oil, melted

3 tbsp almond butter

40g cocoa powder

90g nuts of choice (I used cashews and hazelnuts, halved)

75g dried cranberries

3 fresh figs, thinly sliced


  1. Pulse the dates, coconut oil, almond butter and cocoa powder in a food processor for a few minutes, until it forms a thick, smooth paste.
  2. Combine the paste with the nuts and cranberries, mixing well to combine.
  3. In a lined baking tray, press the mixture down to around 1.5 cm thick. Pop in the freezer for at least 2 hours to set. Remove from the freezer 30 minutes before serving to soften.
  4. Decorate with the fig slices, before slicing into bars with a sharp knife. Enjoy immediately or store in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
