  1. Line an 8-inch square baking tin with parchment paper.
  2. In a pot gently heat the peanut butter, honey and coconut oil until they form runny syrup. Do not boil or the mixture will burn.

  4. Transfer the mix to the lined baking tin and press down well.
  5. To make the topping, strain the dates and transfer to a in a blender together with the remaining peanut butter and blitz until they form a soft caramel like texture. To make it easier to blend, add a little water to soften the texture of the dates.
