1/4 cup Coconut flakes (17g)
3 TBSP coconut palm sugar

Preparation – Base:
In your blender or food processor, grind oats to flour.

Grind almonds and coconut flakes as well, add to the bowl.
Add remaining ingredients, stir dough, adding water little by little, until the mix starts to stick together.

Notes:

C = cup, 240 ml
1/2 C = half a cup, 120 ml or / TBSP
1/4 C = quarter of a cup, 60 ml or 4 TBSP
TBSP = table spoon, 15 ml or 3 tsp
tsp = tea spoon, 5 ml
“soft dates” = medjool are usually best. If necessary, soak briefly and drain. The soaking water is super sweet by the way!
