fullsizeoutput_ea2

Only 4 ingredients ! perfect for lunches, snacks, breakfast and not sweetened with sugar

CRUST

1.5 cups raw almonds
1.5 cups oats, if you have an intolerance to gluten use GF oats
10 pitted dates roughly chopped
1/4 cup melted coconut oil

DATE FILLING

25 pitted dates roughly chopped
1/2 cup of water

Line an 8 x 8 square pan with parchment paper (my trick is to put the pan above the paper,  trace with a pencil all around and then cut with scissors đŸ™‚

In a food processor , process the almonds and oats until fine, add the dates and process again. Add the melted coconut oil and process until sticky. Set aside 3/4 of a cup of the mixture for later (for top layer). Take remaining of the mixture and press firmly and evenly into your pan.

For the filling use the food processor as well and process the dates and water until a paste forms. Spread the date mixture onto the crust and spread with a flat spatula.

Sprinkle the 3/4 of the mixture previously set aside and press down with your fingers. Let set in the fridge for 1 hour minimum. Cut into squares and ENJOY !

Make your own !  TEETH WHITENING that is !

I kid you not, Baking Soda and Coconut Oil, 2 ingredients that we all have at home.

You are assured of no additives and will not pay the exorbitant amounts certain brands  retail for.

Simply mix one teaspoon of each ingredient in a tiny bowl.  Mix it well, that is until there are no lumps and until you no longer hear a grainy sound.

1st step, floss and brush as you would regularly do, then use your toothbrush to do same but with your mix, use it entirely. Rinse well.

You will notice a difference after the very first time !

I Repeat every month but you can certainly do it once a week if you wish or on a need basis.
