Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and place your dried figs in hot water for 5-10 minutes.

  • Mix all your crust ingredients together, except for the water. Save the water for last if you find your crust super sticky or dry - then add in the water.
    1 Cup Almond Flour, 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour, 1/4 Cup Tapioca Starch, 1 Egg, 3 tbsp Maple Syrup, 1/4 Cup Melted Coconut Oil, Pinch Salt, 1 tbsp Water
  • Roll out the crust between two pieces of parchment paper.
  • Cut the crust into strips.
  • Place the filling on half of the strips and begin folding the other half on top of the strips with the filling to form your Fig Newton logs. Your goal is to create 4-5 logs. This may take some patience, but it's worth it!
  • Once you have your logs created and you are satisfied with how they look, place them on a non-stick baking sheet or parchment paper and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Once they are golden brown, remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Once cool cut into your desired size of cookie. Enjoy!

Notes

  • You want to bake your cookies until they are golden brown as the fig newtons will keep them moist.
  • Store in an air tight container for 4 days or freeze for 1-2 months.
