Banana Fig & Date Slice

I love using figs and dates in my recipes. They make a great base to any vegan snack as they’re sticky, sweet and are great at combining ingredients together. These slices can be enjoyed warm or cold. They’re a delicious, filling and healthy snack. They’re totally healthy, vegan and refined sugar free, yum! Enjoy!

        I use standard units of measure. Any chance you have the recipe using cups, tablespoons,etc?
