Ivelina  —  June 18, 2013

Hello , my friends

today’s recipe is a real sweet vegan treat. I made almond and oat buns with no sugar and they taste amazing.easy vegan recipes

I used dates and I am so pleased with the final result. The main thing is that my boys liked them and that is always a real compliment to anything, that I make.

Here is what you need :

  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1 cup of soaked almonds
  • 10 dates
  • 1 tea spoon of baking soda
  • 1 spoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter (or vegan spread)
  • 1 tea spoon of baking soda
  • a dash of amaretto(optional)

For the icing :

  • 1 small cup of  raspberries
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 dates
  • 1/2 small cup of vegan spread (I use “Pure”)


  1. Blend the soaked almonds in a blender and place into a large bowl.
  2. Next blend the oats with the dates and add the coconut butter , the baking soda and the cinnamon and blend for another 30 seconds.
  3. Mix everything into the bowl. Then add the amaretto and mix well.

Ready to go into the oven


Shape them into small balls and put inside cupcake paper holders and place into the oven for about 35-40 minutes in 180″C.
While they are baking you can make the icing. You need the Vitamix to turn the raspberries into a smooth texture Simply add the lemon juice to the raspberries and blend in the Vitamix for about a minute , until you get a smooth texture, then add the dated and blend for another 30- 60 seconds.To finish it off I added the vegan spread to the ordinary blender and pour the mixture from the Vitamox.
