- For the dough:
- 150g (5.3 oz) almond flour (ground almonds) (I recommend these)
- 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil (I recommend this one)
- 2 Tbsp honey (I recommend this one)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- For the filling:
- 100g (3.5 oz) dates (or figs) (I recommend these)
- 4 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Combine all the ingredients for the dough in a bowl. Let them sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- In a blender, blend dates with lemon juice and vanilla extract until you have a thick, smooth mixture.
- Take dough out of the refrigerator and place onto a sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Cover with another piece of parchment paper and roll out into a rectangle. The narrower and longer a rectangle you make, the more snacks you’ll have.
- When rolled out, spread filling onto the dough, leaving 0.5 cm around the edge.
- Fold the other side (the one without the filling) over the filling and level off the edges.
- Cut the roll carefully into small pieces with a knife (don’t divide them, or they’ll fall apart) and bake at 180 degrees Celsius (356 °F) for 10 to 15 minutes, until brown.
