This recipe is from the Veggie Tree Cookbook by Anna Valentine. Anna’s recipes also feature in our Vegetarian Living NZ magazine.

Thank you Anna for the contribution.

This is a quick and easy recipe that is full of goodness and energy – a perfect snack. If using butters that have separated, mix well before measuring. For best results roll by pressing the mix together then roll with the palms of your hands to make smooth.
