1

Remove the stalks from the dried figs. Place in a small bowl, bring the kettle to the boil and pour just enough water over the top to cover. Leave to soak for 10 minutes to soften. Remove from the water and pat dry.

2

Place in a food processor with the oats, banana, vanilla and pulse to bring together to a paste. Add the peanut butter and pulse to incorporate. If it’s too sticky to handle add an extra sprinkling of oats and blend again. If not, we are ready to roll.

3

Place the finely chopped pistachios in shallow bowl. Form the mixture into truffle sized balls and coat each one in the finely chopped pistachios. Place in the fridge to set and firm up.

Love your recipes and the idea of simplified French cooking. Do you have any recipes for people with fructose intolerance? This is a serious food allergy my daughter has and I’m wondering if it will ever return to normal.

Thanks Rachel
