Poppy Seed Fig Dumplings

"Poppy seed fig dumplings! That's a sweet dish I ate in my childhood. I loved it back then! I veganized it and made a healthy version! They turned out DELICIOUS as f***. You can also use plums, pears or nearly any other fruit you'd like. You shouldn't use fruits like watermelon which consist basically out of water. Let's start with the recipe! Please try them and tell me how you liked them! If you don't want them to be as healthy as possible use a little more sugar in the dough and oil instead of peanut butter. ✌🏼⠀"
