These really are the perfect tea time treat to bake quickly, munch slowly and enjoy with a big cup of tea on the weekend. They’re my go-to bake when I’m peckish, as I normally always have these ingredients or at least the base ingredients in my cupboard. I tend to change up what I put in them, cranberries and pistachios being a particular favourite over the winter months.

The base ingredients of dates, honey and coconut oil come together to make a sweet caramel like sauce that is seriously beautiful to look at, and incredibly delicious to eat straight from the blender.

These bites store brilliantly, so make a big batch and snack on them during the week.
