Add your dates to a bowl and pour boiling water over them. Let them soak for a few minutes. While they’re soaking, combine the oats, sliced almonds, seeds and cinnamon in a large bowl.

Add the dates and 2 tablespoons of their soaking water to your food processor and blitz on high until they are well broken up into a paste. Add in the melted coconut oil and blend some more until you have a lovely smooth(ish!) mixture.

Pour the date mixture in to the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Spread the mixture out into a small tin lined with parchment paper and pop in the freezer for about an hour. Take out, slice and serve!
