  • 1 ½ cup dates
  • 2 tbsp Califia Farms Unsweetened Almond Milk

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

METHOD:
1) Break down almonds and pistachios in food processor until a crumb forms. Add in dates and almond milk, process until sticky.
2) Press base mixture evenly into the base of a lined square tin and set aside.
