All the squidgy fruitiness of a Christmas pudding, in a bliss ball bite. Made from oats, dried fruit, pistachios, walnuts, spices and citrus zest – these are a great vegan treat to have ready for visitors over the festive period.
160g dates, de-stoned
50g Mornflake Gluten Free Superfast Oats
50g dried figs
Zest ½ orange
Zest ½ lemon
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp nutmeg
60g vegan white chocolate
1 tsp coconut oil
16 dried cranberries
Add all the dried fruit, oats, nuts, orange and lemon zest and spices to a food processor. Blend until the dates are smooth and the nuts retain a slight bite. The mix should bind together when squeezed in your hands.
Divide the mix into 30g pieces and then roll each into a smooth ball. Place onto a large plate covered with baking paper, and put in the fridge to chill.
To make the topping melt the white chocolate and coconut oil over a bain-marie or in a microwaveable bowl for 2 mins at 600 watts in the microwave.
Decorate the top of each Christmas pudding bite by spooning over the white chocolate (the thicker the better) and topping each ball with a dried cranberry.
Store in an airtight container and eat within 1 week.
