Raw Dessert Sushi

dessert sushiI got to admit I’m pretty addicted to raw desserts at the moment. Raw bliss balls, fudge, “cheese”cake, brownie, pudding. They are not only simple and fun to make but also packed with nutrition and goodness. This sweet sushi is actually not too sweet. I think soft gooey dates, peanut butter and cacao powder do the trick for me, but if you have a serious sweet tooth, feel free to add some coconut sugar or serve with a drizzle of honey. You can also be creative with fillings such as berry jams, nut butter, tahini or even banana. One or two with a cuppa is perfect snack during the day or dessert after dinner.

Ingredients (make one roll)

100g oats
5 walnuts
15g flaxmeal
4-5 Medijool dates, pitted and chopped
a pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp water
1-2 tbsp peanut butter, melted
1 tbsp cacao powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder

To make a dough, place oats, flaxmeal and salt in a food processor and blitz until they are all grounded fine. Add chopped dates, melted coconut oil and water into a food processor and blitz again until combined. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and make a dough using your hands. Add a bit of water if the mixture is too dry. Place the dough on the centre of a baking paper and spread evenly to a rectangular shape. For filling, mix peanut butter, cacao powder and cinnamon powder in a bowl. Spread the filling on the dough except edges and then proceed to rolling. Keep the roll wrapped in a baking paper and place in freezer for 10-15 minutes to firm up. Take it out of freezer and slice them into little discs with a sharp knife.
