Unsweetened Fig Newtons

Updated: Feb 19, 2019



Ingredients

Crust:

1 ½ cup of almond meal

2 tbsp of coconut flour

½ cup of unsweetened applesauce

½ tsp of salt

2 tsp of cinnamon

Optional: 1/2 tsp of coconut sugar or date sugar


Filling:

10 oz of dried figs (I used Trader Joe’s)

1 lemon juiced

½ tsp of salt

½ tsp of cinnamon


What to do

Preheat the oven to 350. Place all the crust ingredients in bowl and mix well with your hands. Once the crust is fully combined, take half of the crust and lay it out on parchment paper with your hands. Then place the filling ingredients in the high speed blender and mix for a couple of minutes. The filling should form like a ball! Then evenly place the filling on top of the bottom layer of the crust. Top the filling with the rest of the crust mixture. Carefully cut the fig newtons to bite sizes. Then heat in the oven 25 minutes, and let it cool for 10 minutes.


Note: you can make the crust and filling as thick as you’d like.
