- 1 cup of dates
- 1 cup of almonds
- 1 cup of oatmeal
- 1 cup of peanut butter
- ½ cup of water
Put the dry ingredients on a baking sheet or a pan and roast for 10 min at 350 F (176 C). In a blender, put the ½ cup of water with the cup of dates and blend it until it looks creamy.
Let the almonds and oatmeal cool down and chop it with a knife, mix the almonds and oatmeal in a bowl, add the peanut butter and the blended dates, and stir until they look homogeneous.
Place the mixture between two sheets of kitchen paper and give it a flat shape with your hands, leave it at least one inch thick.
Let it freeze for at least one hour.
After that time, take it out of the fridge and cut it in even pieces.
