Soaking the almonds makes them easier for you to digest by reducing the anti-nutrients such as phytic acid, so if you have digestive issues we recommend soaking overnight but it will still be just as good without doing so for those who can easily digest almonds raw.
1 cup almonds
2 cups dates (soaked in hot water for a bit), 1 of these cups will be used for icing
1 cup filtered water
1/2 cup carob powder (if you don't like carob, you could exchange for 1/4 cup of Cacao)
2 cups of coconut meat / desiccated coconut
Add the almonds, 1 cup dates, carob powder and blend until smooth. Mix in the coconut next, at this point it is up to you as to whether you add the water. I found that mine was moist enough to press but just make sure yours is not too dry that it will crumble apart.
Press the slice into a lined baking tray approx 1 inch deep/thick.
Blend the remaining soaked dates into a paste (add water if necessary). Smooth the date paste over the top of your slice as the icing.
Chill for 2-3 hours. Makes approx 20 slices.
