Instructions

    Preheat the oven to 350F [180C]. Oil a 20 cm [8 in] square baking pan and line with parchment paper.

    Bake the almonds until lightly toasted, about 8 minutes. Let cool. Toast the coconut and bake until lightly golden brown, about 4 minutes. Let cool.

    In a bowl, mix together the flour, oats, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in the almonds and coconut. Stir in the butter until a batter forms, then stir in the prunes and chocolate until evenly incorporated. Press the batter into the prepared pan.

    Bake until lightly browned, about 25 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes. Unmold and cool completely. Once cool, cut into 16 squares.
