Method

  1. In a high-powered blender, blend up the dates and coconut milk until the dates have been broken down to fine pieces.
  2. In  large bowl mix together the flour, oats, baking powder, cacao powder, and desiccated coconut. Make a ‘well’ in the center and pour in the coconut and date mixture along with the maple syrup, vanilla and Choc Shot, mix everything together until well combine.
  3. Pour the mixture into a small baking tin lined with baking paper. Drizzle some extra Choc Shot across the top and then bake in a preheated over at 180’C for 25-30 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool  slightly before cutting into small squares and serving warm with a drizzle of Choc Shot, a sprinkle of coconut, some nuts and maybe even a little bit of banana nice-cream.
