6 cups blanched almond flour
2/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup steviva blendFILLING
2 cups dried figs (or one 283 gram package)
1/2 cup grape juice
1 tbsp steviva blend
Combine filling ingredients and allow to soak for at least one hour (preferably several hours). Run through a blender or food processor and puree.Combine all cookie ingredients. Line a 12 x 17″ rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Evenly spread 1/2 of cookie dough on sheet. (I used a butter knife and spread it like peanut butter on bread)
Chill the pan in the freezer until some what firm. 20 minutes or so…
Spread fig filling over the cookie dough. Freeze until very firm. At least an hour.
Spread remaining cookie dough over the filling. Butter knife method seemed to work best.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 35 – 40 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. Will freeze fairly well, but you will want to seperate layers with waxed paper.
I’m a Nutritional Consultant, Illustrator, health and fitness enthusiast and I love to cook healthy food. I try to avoid sugar and grain but I'm not always 100% stickler to the rules. *gasp*
I always try to create recipes that are healthy that the whole family can enjoy.
Also, I like to just post great recipes. Not a history of the recipe, if my friends and neighbours liked it, how many acrobats were harmed in making the recipe or zillions of photos of said recipes. Keeping it simple.
If you have any nutritional questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
