Almond Fig No-Bake Cookies are sweet and slightly chocolatey treat with a crunch from the cacao nibs. Cacao is actually a seed pod and a part of the cocoa beans before being it is made into chocolate and is, therefore, less processed. Nonetheless, Cacao nibs have a slight chocolate flavor and a nice crunch when you bite into it. Giving a nice bit of texture to anything you add it to. Not to mention that these cookies are low in carbohydrates and calories.
Dried figs are nice and sweet and date back to biblical times. Often times when I eat figs I think about all the people in history who have eaten them before me it somehow makes me feel closer to people all over the world. As we share a common food experience a connection to the past, present, and future.
For this recipe, you will need to rehydrate the figs and remove the stem-like part of each fig. Incredibly once dried will also add a nice texture and mild crunch. Subsequently, that is pretty much all that there is to it. When all the ingredients are combined simply roll into a ball. Store in the fridge anytime you want a sweet treat or an after-school snack or as a snack to a homeschool event.
Notes about my blog and me:
Ever since revamping my blog I feel like I am behind. I have learned so much since starting this blog a little over a year ago. When I first started if you had asked me about SEO, meta tags and other blogging lingo words. I would have stared at you like a deer in the headlights. (Which by the way Deer in the Headlights is a fun card game as well). I have indeed learned a ton and hope that my growth is noticeable from those who have read my blog from the beginning.
I am still suffering from insomnia so if my words sound wonky or odd now you know why. Hopefully, I will get a good nights sleep tonight. Eventually, I will get a good nights sleep of 7 to 8 hours. Needless to say, I am beyond exhausted. Thanks to all who read my blog. I hope and pray that you see the good in the world. May we all look for positivity and the good in each other while granting grace from time to time as we all make mistakes and fall down. Everyone we know is going through something regardless of what you perceive their life to be.
