Throw all ingredients into the food processor and pulse until well blended. Add a piece of parchment paper to the bottom of a 8×8 baking pan. Press mixture firmly in the bottom of the pan (it should be about 1 1/2 inches thick). Pop into the freezer for 1 hour. Take out and cut into vertically to create the bar shape. Store in the fridge in glass tupperware, if they even last that long!
