The figs looked so plump and yummy at the market that I knew I had to make a recipe with them. What I came up with reminds me of and tastes like a biscuit (or some of you may refer to it as a cookie!). You can use preservative free dried figs and soak them in coconut water/water or a milk alternative overnight to soften them up before blending them. Figs contain calcium, potassium, iron, manganese and are a good source of fibre.
Give it a try and enjoy!
