- Line a 24×28 rectangular pan with baking paper. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Place oats, cubed almond paste, pinch of salt, chopped dates, melted coconut oil and water in a food processor. Pulse a few times until the mixture comes together.
- Spread the mixture firmly into the prepared pan and press firmly. Bake the base until lightly golden, about 15 minutes.
- Spread the red currant jam over and drop the slightly melted peanut butter over the jam, and then use a butter knife to swirl the two together.
- Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 20 minutes until the filling is almost set. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
