Blitz all ingredients in a food processor until the mixture starts to come together. Turn the food processor off and scrape the mixture down from the sides. Blitz again until you reach the desired smooth consistency. Press into a small pan lined with baking paper. After 30 mins, cut mixture into bite sized pieces.
Alternatively, you can roll into balls.
