  1. Get out your mixer and using the blade whizz up the banana and dates so they are smooth
  2. Add the buckwheat and pulse until the groats have broken up a bit.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until it all comes together
  4. Press the mix down into either cupcake trays or a square dish that will fit all the mix in snuggly and stick it in the fridge.
