Fig Cookies

Happy 4th of July!  Get ready to pop these beauties into your pie hole!

 

Cookies are best when they are sweet yet not too sweet.  I love them when there is a little crumble on the outside and then they are soft in the center.  I also love figs.  Seems like the perfect combination right…ummm if you are 80 years old or constipated!  Truth be told, I just love figs… dried or fresh.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of almond or cashew flour
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dried organic Smyrna Figs
  • 1/2 cups raw hazelnuts
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

Directions:

  • Put everything except for the ginger into the food processor.
  • Ball up and press gently  on parchment paper on a cookie sheet in the oven on 350 for about 15-18 mins.  Sprinkle the ginger on the cookies just before they go into the oven.
