    1 ½ cups Whole raw Almonds and or Pecans
    1 ½ cups Regular oats or
    (1 cup Oats and ½ cup Sprouted Buckwheat combination)
    ¼ cup Coconut Flakes
    ½ teaspoon Sea Salt
    10 Medjool dates, pitted
    ½ teaspoon Pumpkin Pie spices
    ½ cup Coconut Oil

    Date Filling:
    25 Medjool dates, pitted
    ½ cup Hot Water
    1 teaspoon Vanilla

    * Coat an 8 x 8 pan with a light mist of pan spray.
    * In a food processor, process the nuts, salt, and oats and/or buckwheat until a crumble forms.
    * Add in the dates and process until crumbly again. Melt the coconut oil and add to the mixture and process until it will stick together when squeezed.
    * Remove from processor, set aside 3/4 cup of the mixture for later. Press the rest of the mixture very firmly and evenly into the pan.
    * Next blend the dates and water in the blender until a paste forms. Scoop out the date mixture onto the crust and gently spread with the back of a wet spatula until even.
    * Sprinkle on the 3/4 cup of mixture you set aside and gently press down with fingers. Top with flaked coconut.
    * Refrigerate in the fridge until firm for at least 1 hour, but best to leave overnight. Cut into 25 squares and serve.
    * Store in the refrigerator.
