  2. Pulse the ingredients a few times, stirring if the dates begin to clump together. 
  3. Process until the ingredients begin to form a large ball of “dough” (Stir if necessary but continue to process until a thick dough forms).

  5. Sprinkle remaining coconut onto plastic wrap. 
  6. Press a large ball of dough into the dish, shaping it into a large square.
