Prep & Cook Time: 35 Minutos
- 150 gr dried apricots (free of sulphur dioxide)
- 100 gr of almond ground
- 100 gr of buckwheat flour
- ½ tsp of baking powder
- ½ tsp of baking soda
- Pinch of cinnamon
Heat the oven to 180º C/356ºF
In a food processor, add the apricots with olive oil, vanilla extract and blend the ingredients until you get an even paste.
Add all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix. Add the previous blend, the soya drink and mix well until you get a “what is going to look like” elastic paste. Sprinkle the poppy seeds.
Pour onto a muffin tin ad cook it for 20 minutes.
Eat them at breakfast with a yogurt/tea or as a mid-morning snack as they are treat sized and full of goodness!
TIP | tried a second time to mix vegan protein powder (Thirdwave Nutrition): instead of 100 gr of buckwheat flour, mix 80gr of buckwheat flour and 20gr of vanilla-flavored protein powder (eliminate the vanilla extract then).
As for vanilla extract, I know that taylor & colledge’s looks expensive when looking it up online or in shops, but 100 ml endured a whole year of recipes at my home!! In addition to being a healthier option, it is fair trade! 🙂
