  • 300 g pitted dates roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • ¾ cup macadamia nuts halved
  • ¾ cup dried apricots about 100 grams
  • ¾ cup small dried whole figs or large figs, halved about 100 grams


  • Line a 20cm x 10cm loaf tin with baking paper. Combine the dates and coconut oil in a medium saucepan or frying pan and stir over medium heat until the oil liquifies. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes or until the dates are soft. 
  • Remove from the heat and cool slightly or until it is not too hot to touch. Place in a bowl with the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Use your hands to thoroughly combine the mixture and then press tightly into the prepared tin
  • Allow to cool completely in the tin before slicing to serve, or alternatively, just cut slices from the loaf-shaped block as you please. 
  • Store in plastic wrap in the fridge for 2 -3 weeks.
