As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program, I received another new product to sample – Newtons Fruit Thins. I was happy to see they sent me the Fig and Honey flavor, as I love figs! There are other flavors that sound good – Chocolate Raspberry, Cranberry Citrus Oat and Blueberry Brown Sugar.
A thin crispy cookie, they contain real fruit and whole grains (8 grams per serving). I love a thin crispy cookie and these were good!
I cannot leave well enough alone, though. I had to make a sandwich cookie out of them – with more fig!
vanilla fig spread
fills 8 sandwich cookies
8 dried figs
6 Medjool dates, pitted
10 drops NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia
1 tablespoon nut butter
1 tablespoon chia seed gel
Process in food processor. Spread on cookie, top with another cookie. Enjoy!
The cookies are tasty on their own, and with this spread sandwiched between, just lovely. This spread is also good as an oatmeal topping, rolled into a ball as an energy bite, eaten off a spoon…
