Tasty no-bake fresh fig treats! A stylish fabulous Food Gift!

Tasty no-bake fresh fig treats! A stylish fabulous Food Gift!

Yesterday evening, I invented these tasty no-bake fresh fig treats! I used fresh ripe figs from my own fig tree in here! I joined a whole lot of tasty ingredients together to make these beautiful tasty treats! They are No-Bake, Vegan & Gluten-Free too!Β Some of them, I rolled into 80% dark vegan chocolate shavings & other I left naked, just like that. You must taste them to see which ones you prefer,…Check them out! They also make a great & tasty food gift! πŸ™‚ Oooh yes!



I love to savour mine with a good vegan cafe latte! πŸ™‚

Recipe: For 25 larger tasty balls


4 ripe juicy fresh figs, cleaned & cut up into smaller pieces

2 cups of white almond flour, divided into 1 cup + 1 cup

maple syrup: 2 tablespoons

1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste

2 teaspoons broken flaxseed

unsweetened organic popped quinoa puffs: Β 2 cups + 2 tablespoons

1/4 cup vegan dark chocolate shavings, at least 80% chocolate

1/4 cup cut up dried apricots

Organic unsweetened quinoa puffs!

1. Take your food processor & place the S-blade in. Add figs, 1 cup of almond powder, 2 tablespoons of quinoa puffs, cut up apricots, flaxseed, 1/4 cup of dark chocolate shavings, vanilla paste & 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Blitz until it all comes together. You will end up with a more runny pinkish mash. Taste. Now, put all the pink mix into a larger bowl & add 1 cup of white almond flour, 2 cups of quinoa puffs & 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Mix with a spoon until you get a thicker mix. Taste! It is just right in sweetness, I think! πŸ˜‰

2. I took about 1/3 cup of those dark vegan chocolate shavings & spread it out onto a clean plate. I formed 25 larger balls from the dough & rolled most of them into those dark chocolate shavings. I left 6 tasty balls naked, just like that, see picture below! πŸ™‚

I put each of them into a nice colourful muffin holder & placed them together in several cookie boxes. I placed the fitted lid on & put all of them in the fridge to stiffen up a bit. Ten to five minutes before serving, take them out of the fridge. Serve them in their lovely paper holding, with a lovely cup of fresh tea or a cafΓ© latte! Enjoy! πŸ™‚ These treats would be ideal as a lovely food gift! πŸ™‚ MMM,…!Β

    You find the most interesting ingredients–quinoa puffs? Wow πŸ™‚ Are they always for baking? Are they a cereal? Would you eat them as a snack?

    These babies look good, Sophie!

      I just found them in my local bioplanet shop & thought I should try them. So, I did! I am thinking of new recipes on how to use them! πŸ˜‰ x

  14. Quinoa puffs are brilliant! Wish I could find those around here… I bet they would make some mean cereal treats too. πŸ™‚

    Sophie…I want to dive right in…they look scrumptious! πŸ™‚

  16. Figs from your own tree rolled in dark chocolate. Count me in. These sound divine Sophie.

  17. Eva Taylor says:

    You are so fortunate to have your very own fig tree, figs are so expensive in Toronto. I bought a small potted tree which I will bring inside in the winter; I was so excited when I saw three figs growing on it but when we returned from the cottage they were gone! Grrrr! The quinoa puffs are a fabulous addition and I love the variety of coatings you’ve used.

    • Sophie33 says:

      ooooh sorry to hear that, Eva! 😦
      We only have had about 35 ripe figs for the moment, but I hope all the rest of them will get ripe too! πŸ™‚

  18. Wow!! Those look delish, Sophie!

  19. Sophie! Perfect timing. Figs are in such abundance right now.

  20. Suzanne says:
