Figgie Rawtons

Recently I purchased the delicious dried figs from Sprouts. They were just the right sweetness (not too sweet), and nice and chewy – as if they were still fresh. So I decided to make my own raw version of the popular “Fig Newtons” that I used to love eating. The recipe is pretty simple to make and very yummy! Try it for yourself.

Ingredients:
for the outside cookie.
1/3 to 1/2 cup raw Brazil nuts
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 cup raw walnuts
1/4 cup raw almond flour
dash pink Himalayan salt
1 cup pitted Medjool dates
1/2 cup pitted California dates (any variety of date will due)

Preparation:
Combine all the nuts and salt in a food processor and pulse until completely ground. Add flour and mix. Add dates and process until crumbly. Spread dough over parchment paper. Using a rolling pin roll out dough and form an even slightly thick rectangular shape. Set aside.

Ingredients:
For the figgie filling.
2 cups dried figs
1/2 cup pitted California dates (or any variety)
dash ground cinnamon
dash ground ginger

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until completely combined and gooey.

Other Ingredient:
lucuma powder for dusting

Assembly Preparation:
Spread figgie mixture over top of rolled out cookie dough, only covering 1/2 the rectangle. Spread evenly. Fold the other side over forming a large square-like sandwich. Lightly press down. Cut off any uneven sides. Carefully slice the sandwich into small squares. Set in refrigerator to chill for about 1 hour.

Before serving, dust the tops and bottoms of each figgie square with lucuma powder. That’s it! Enjoy!!!
