  1. Heat oven to 170 degrees and line 2 large baking trays with greaseproof paper
  2. Place walnuts, sugar, oats, cacao and bicarb soda in the bowl of a food processor
  3. Blitz until finely chopped
  4. Add egg, dates and vanilla and blitz until well combined and a thick, sticky 'paste' has formed
  5. Tip into a bowl and stir through chocolate chunks or chips
  6. Using two teaspoons, scoop out teaspoonfuls of mixture and place on prepared trays
  7. Using the back of a clean, wet teaspoon, flatten biscuits as best as possible (they won't spread while cooking)
