Tip: You can use dried Medjool dates, but first steam over hot water, until softened.

  • ¾ cup each: sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips (optional leave out for gluten free or dairy free)


  1. Place the dates in a food processor and whizz until well chopped. Add the seeds and pulse until chopped. Add the coconut, cinnamon and salt, and pulse to combine.
  2. Remove from the food processor. Stir in the mini chocolate chips, if using.
