To be honest, these doughnut holes were an accident. I wanted to experiment with dried figs. I never use figs but I love Fig Newton's so why not?! I have made many desserts with dates and coconut and love them, so I thought it was worth blending my figs, some dates and coconut together for a new tasty mixture. Well, can you say totally awesome? I can! The figs and dates really balance each other out in a great way. I took the mixture over the top with some virgin coconut oil, which made it taste like granola! I fully recommend eating it that way too, by the way!

Preparation

‘Bare’ Raw Timbits (Vanilla):
  1. Add all ingredients to food processor and blend until crumbly. At this stage you can eat the mixture as cereal or roll into little balls. For balls with a creamier texture, blend a little longer until the crumbs come together like a dough and then roll into balls. For each ball I use 1 heaping teaspoon of the dough.
