My lovely readers, you have seen all sorts of recipes on this blog and whilst I try to cook healthy, there are few recipes where it yields food which has high calorific content or not suitable for Vegans. Hence I thought I will share something which is more vegan friendly as well as ticks the boxes of those following Paleo diet too.
This is Date and Fig roll, which is a no-cook recipe too.
I will prefer to call this a very healthy roll as most of the contents are dry fruits, namely, almonds, cashew nuts, dates and figs. This can be a sugar free recipe too if you don’t wish to add sugar, I did add a bit of organic date sugar.
I treat cooking as stress buster for myself, do you feel the same at times? The recipe of this Date and Fig rolls is so quick that there is any stress (in case thoughts of cooking gives you jitters). The recipe barely takes 10 mins.
I mean what else can one ask? Ready in 10 mins, No cooking, Healthy. You may ask is it tasty? Hell yeah!!! Don’t go with my words and try yourself (getting 10 mins out of a day is not a big deal…is it?)
As you can see from pictures, these rolls can be of two types, one where you roll over desiccated coconut powder over rolls (it adds to flavour), or simple ones without any coconut. We have divided views, I like with coconut, however my partner and daughter prefers with out coconut.
Which one will you prefer?
You know another beauty of this recipe is that since it does not involve any cooking I get chance to involve my kid and we both have fun making various shapes from the mixture of these rolls. I guess thats a good way to keep kids engaged too.
What more benefits?? You can make these rolls and they will be perfect in edible condition for 2-3 weeks easily even if kept outside refrigerator. I call these energy balls too and when I am craving for something to munch, I reach out to these balls as these are bursting with energy and its guilt free eating (barely anything unhealthy in these Date balls).
The detailed “step by step recipe of these energy packed vegan and paleo diet approved date and fig balls” is below.
I hope you will enjoy these guilt free energy balls as much as I do.
