Figgy-Mahn Rollz | Vegan – Gluten Free – Not Cooked

I LOVE fig newtons.  Figgy-Mahn Rollz are a much healthier alternative with a new pimped out rasta / reggae swag.  They are the perfect sweet-tooth fix, or a great energy bite for a snack or workout. Figs are high in calcium and dates with all that potassium, whole grain oats, fabulous fiber in here, phytochemicals, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory flaxy polyunsaturated essential fatty acids. What more could you ask for? ❤

Figgy-Mahn Rollz

Serves 12

Crust

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup moist pitted dates
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil (to grease baking sheet)

If using a food processor S blade:

  1. Blend the oats alone until a rough flour
  2. Add in the dates and the lime and process until it forms a smooth uniform dough

If using a high speed blender like ninja or vitamix:

  1. Blend the oats alone until a rough flour and pour into a separate bowl
  2. Blend the dates and the lime until smooth
  3. Using a fork or mashed potato masher, combine the date paste with the oat flour until smooth and uniform

To assemble:

  1. Spread the coconut oil over the baking sheet to grease it
  2. Spread the dough onto the baking sheet.  It doesn’t have to cover the whole sheet.  Trim edges so they are straight and try to make it an even thickness
