Ingredients you'll need
  • 175g medjool dates
  • 125g + 4 tbsp oats
  • 1-2 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Pinch of cinnamon
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Remove the stones from your dates.

  • 2.

    Place the dates, ground almonds (left from your almond milk), oats, cinnamon and 1 tbsp orange juice in a food processor or blender.

  • 3.

    Whiz till everything starts to come together into a sticky, oaty ball. Add more oats if the mix is too sticky or more juice if it’s too dry. It should be slightly softer than play dough.

  • 4.

    Use a spoon to scoop out cherry tomato-sized balls of the mix. Roll in your hands till smooth.

  • 5.

    Roll the pieces into little balls. Roll the balls through the 4 tbsp of oats, giving them a little oaty coating.

  • 6.

    Will keep 3-4 days in the fridge, or you can freeze the mix, defrost and eat once soft.

  • 7.

    Oatmeal cookie bath bombs: Cut a square of muslin or old fabric (about 16cm x 16cm). Spoon in 1 tbsp oats and a pinch of cinnamon. Pull the sides up. Twist. Tie securely with a string. Use in the bath as a sponge to make your skin super soft.

  • 8.

    Make your own flour: You can also use your leftover oats to make homemade flour. Just put in a food processor and blitz till it looks like flour? If you’ve got a big pestle and mortar you can grind them by hand but this takes a bit more elbow grease. You can use your flour to make cakes, cookies, griddle cakes, scones and more.
