- Line an 8-inch square baking tin with parchment paper.
- 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.

- Transfer the mix to the lined baking tin and press down well.
- 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.
