Line a baking dish with parchment paper with at least 2 inches hanging over the edges. To the bowl of a food processor, add dates, blueberries, almond butter, and 2 tbsp coconut oil. Pulse until a rough paste forms. Add sunflower seeds and shredded coconut then pulse until thoroughly combined. Transfer superfood mixture into lined dish. Press down until compressed and about ½ inch thick. Set aside.
