Prep Time
Serves

Instructions

  1. Add the oats and desiccated coconut to your food processor. Blend on the high until a flour like mixture forms.

  2. Add the pitted dates, peanut butter, coconut oil, water, vanilla and pinch of salt to your food processor and blend again until a dough-like mixture forms. If the mixture still seems a little dry add a touch more water.

  3. Using your hands scoop out some of the mixture and press down to flatten into a disk shape.

  4. Place a small dollop of jam in the centre ten gently fold in the edges to seal the jam inside. Roll into a ball shape.

  5. Repeat until you’ve used up all the mixture. You should make 8-10 balls.

  6. Place the balls into the fridge for 2 hours to set.

  7. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and consume with 1 week.

My love and passion for vegan food was initially inspired by health problems. After being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and coeliac disease as well as suffering with mental health issues, I realised my diet needed to change drastically. My symptoms were affecting every area of my life, so I began to look at what food I was putting into my body and educated myself on how nutrition has a direct impact on how we feel, physically and mentally.
