  • ½ a cup of walnuts

Toffee top layer

  • 7 Majool dates

Instructions

Start by processing the almonds, macadamia, & walnuts first. Proceed to add the other base ingredients into the food processor until it starts to resemble a sticky base.

Place your base ingredients into a dish & press firmly into place. Then chop one banana & place on top of your base.

Then proceed to add the ingredients for the toffee top layer into the food processor for a couple of minutes, or until it resembles a runny toffee consistency. Pour this evenly on top of your base.
