Vegan Baking






  • 400g Medjool Dates
  • 100g Almond Butter
  • 1tsp Vanilla
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 20g Popped Popcorn
  • 70g Roasted Almonds (roughly chopped)


  • 120g Whittakers 50% Dark Chocolate
  • 1tsp Vegetable Oil
  • 15g Roasted Almonds (roughly chopped)



  • Grease and line a loaf tin, with baking paper hanging over the edge for ease of removing the slice. 
  • Place cookies in a food processor and blitz until they resemble fine crumbs. Add the salt and oil then blitz to combine.
  • Press the cookie mixture firmly down in the base of the lined tin. Use a spoon to smooth it out evenly. Refrigerate.
  • Wipe out the food processor and add the dates, almond butter, vanilla and salt. Blitz for 3-4 minutes until the mixture comes together to form a smooth paste. Tip into a bowl and mix through the popcorn and almonds. The mixture will be quite sticky - if you wet your hands it will be easier. Press the mixture down evenly over the biscuit base.
  • Place the chocolate and oil in a bowl over a pot of simmering water. Do not let the pot touch the water. Stir until melted and pour over the date filling. Scatter over the Almonds. 
  • Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight. 
  • Carefully remove from the tin and slice with a hot knife.
