Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190c/170c Fan. Line a 18cm square tin with baking parchment. 

Finely chop the dates and then place in saucepan over a medium heat with the agave syrup and olive spread, until the spread has melted and the dates well blended in. 

Add the rest of the ingredients to the saucepan and stir well until thoroughly mixed.
