Preheat your oven to 180c.
Pop the dates, banana & nut butter into your food processor or high speed blender and blitz until you get a paste.
Next add in the vanilla, cinnamon, mixed spice, salt, baking powder. Blitz again for a minute or so.
Add in the oats and ground almonds and pulse so that everything is combined.
Finally add in the cacao nips and chopped nuts and pulse a couple of times to mix through.
Grease your baking tray with a little coconut oil then either wet your hands before scooping up the mix with your hands, roll into a ball then place on the baking tray. Continue until you have used all the mix.
Flatten the cookies a little then bake for 18 minutes.
Top with more nuts and cacao nips – press in a little.
Allow to cool a little before eating – if you can!
