The trickiest bit is finding two identical baking tins. And maybe pitting all the dates, that’s always a boring task…


½ x cup almonds

½ x cup cashews

¼ x cup raisins or sultanas

¾ x cup pitted dates

½ x tbsp cocoa powder



Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until a coarse paste is formed. To check if blended enough, squeeze a bit of the mixture between your finger and thumb. The mixture should bind together.

Spoon the mixture into a lightly greased baking tin (I used a round one with a 9 inch diameter) and press down.

Lightly grease the underneath of an identical baking tin and press down hard on the top of your crumble. Add a weight to the top of the baking tin (I used a large jar of golden syrup) and leave in the fridge for at least a couple of hours, but preferably overnight.

Remove from the fridge and take off the top baking tin.

Turn upside down onto a chopping board and gently tap the bottom baking tin until the crumble drops out.

Slice up and enjoy!

I individually wrapped mine up in tinfoil so I could take one to work each day. Be careful – they can be slightly messy to eat!
