Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Oil a 9×13 pan with a little coconut oil and set aside.
In a large saucepan, place ½ cup agave syrup, water, raisins, and dates. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Set aside a let cool
In a large bowl combine the flour, butter, coconut oil, and salt. Work all ingredients together until crumbly and add eggs, vanilla, ¾ cup agave or maple syrup, coconut, and nuts of your choice. Mix everything together and divide in half.
