  3. Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  4. Place the porridge oats and millet flakes in the blender and blend until you reach a fine flour mixture. Add in 100ml melted coconut oil, maple syrup, ground almonds,  1/4tsp salt and mix well.
  5. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread the flake and almond mixture out evenly. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
  7. In the meantime, make your caramel. Drain your dates, drain and rinse your cashews, place them in a food processor or high-speed blender. Add-in 1tbsp coconut sugar, a little splash of water, a pinch of salt and blend until you get thick caramel consistency.
  8. Spread your caramel layer out evenly on the baked base. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
