Having a roll on the side of a cup of coffee or tea on a lazy weekend morning is unbeatable, especially when the roll is fresh and full of natural ingredients. A tablespoon of poppy seeds contains 12 percent of your total calcium for the day, as well as 7 percent of your magnesium and 4 percent of your Iron. So munch away!
Poppy Seed Roll [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]
- 1 cup dates
- 1 cup almond flour (or ground nuts)
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
Poppy seed filling:
- 1 cup ground poppy seeds
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/4 cup coconut cream
- 2 tbsp agave syrup (amount to taste)
- Use very soft dates. Blend together dates, almond flour and flaxseeds into dough. Knead in hand until all held together. If dough is washy and sticky, add almond flour. If dry, add a tablespoon of water. The dough is perfect when the ingredients hold together and nothing falls apart. It should be good to roll (ideally, place dough between two food foils).
- Mix all ingredients for the filling together and apply equally on rolled-out rectangular dough. Use the bottom sheet of foil to help you roll the rectangle up into a jellyroll shape and leave to rest. ( You can refrigerate at this point for a few minutes so it has a chance to firm up a bit.)
- Slice and serve.
