No-Bake Poppy Seed Rolls

No-Bake Poppy Seed Rolls

These No-Bake Poppy Seed Rolls have pretty much no expiry date, a dough that’s made of dates and nuts, and a filling made with sweet vanilla poppy seed jam. Which also means they’re vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, full of protein and super healthy. They don’t require baking and are ready to eat as soon as they’re all rolled up.

Fudgy with sweet vanilla oozing out from the centre with each mouthful is exactly how I’d describe this. So what are you waiting for?!
