  1. Line a medium sized cake tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Place the cookies into a food processor/blender and whizz up until crumbly, but not too fine.
  3. Melt the butter and coconut oil.
  4. In a bowl, add in the crushed cookies and pour over the melted butter & coconut oil and mix until like wet sand.
