Prepare a loaf pan by lining the long sides with either waxed paper or parchment paper, with the paper sticking up on either side like a sling.
In a food processor, add the almond flour, chopped dates, coconut, maple syrup, cashews, and most of the macadamia nuts. Set aside the reserved macadamias and white chocolate.
Run the food processor until everything inside is ground down. The mix should stick together if you pinch it between your fingers; if it's not cohesive, drizzle in a tiny amount of water and pulse again.
Add the remaining macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips. Pulse a few times to chop them up a little and distribute them.
Pour into the loaf pan. Use a spatula to compress everything. Chill in fridge for at least an hour.
Use the sling to lift up the macadamia mix. Slice into bars. Store in a sealed container in fridge.
