fig newtons on plate

They’re soft, yet crumble when you take a munch. Almost like the real thing – minus the refined sugar.

These little treats are fulfilling and there’s plenty of nutrients packed in figs and dates. The addition of honey is mainly for the sweet toothed;  I don’t think it’s necessary since date and fig fillings are sweet. You can also add walnuts or almonds to give them an extra crunch.

From my experience, the bars are best in a day or two; they become more solid and the taste enhances.
