  • 70 g dates
  • 55 g coconut oil or unsalted butter if you're not dairy-free, softened
  • 50 g cricket flour or 50g more oats
  • 20 g oats (check gluten free)
  • 20 g cacao or cocoa for less nutrients
  • 10 g rice syrup maple syrup, coconut syrup or runny honey
  • Pinch rock salt
  • optional handful raisins, glace cherries, nuts and/or mini marshmallows


  1. Place all the ingredients in a small food processor or chopper and blend until it reaches your desired texture...I like them a little chunky
  2. If you'd like a little more sweetness, add a handful of raisins and mix through. Feel free to add any or all of the optional extras

  3. Spoon into a small dish and press down until around 1cm thick
  4. Square the edges (or push up to the sides of the dish) and chill in the fridge for around an hour before cutting into squares
  5. Alternatively, you could roll the mixture into balls and leave to cool before eating
