One of my favourite treats growing up was fig rolls.. of how I wish they were vegan.. although that wouldn’t help my somewhat healthier lifestyle Im trying to live now! So I figured my love of fig rolls could be made into something just as delicious… a lovely Fig Cake or Slices!
If you prefer to watch in video format this will be live on my YouTube Here from tomorrow!
What You Need;
For the Batter;
2 cups Nuts (ground or whole is fine)
1/4 cup almond butter
1/4 cup almond milk (or any other dairy free milk)
1/4 cup maple syrup (I used agave)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
For the Fig Filling;
1 1/2 cups dried figs
2 tsp of Vanilla
Extra Figs, Nuts or Raw Cacao Nibs (I used Pacari)
What you do
Step 1; Grind the nuts if whole to create a nut flour.
Step 2; Mix all of your batter ingredients in your food processor with the nuts until it forms a nice batter consistency.
Step 3; Pour this into cake pans or tins of choice (I used three small ones!|)
Step 4; Clean out your processor if you wish (I didn’t.. because I’m lazy 😉 and then add your vanilla and figs and blend until it forms a ball.
Step 5; Take this mixture in small spoonfuls and pat it on top of your batter. It is a little tougher than the batter so we do this in small spoons so you dont have too thick a layer.
Step 6; repeat step five until the tops are covered.
Step 7; Decorate how you wish. With fresh fig? More almond butter, nuts or like I did using Chocolate 😉 I used the raw cacao nibs from Pacari !
I hope you have enjoyed this recipe! And let me know if you try it! I would love to see your Raw Creations!
