These slices have no added sugar, and are not over sweet, which makes them great in my books as often slices have way too much sugar.

There is also no cooking involved, and these are fairly nutritious snacks.

I have added a dollop of cream on the top and of course, this is optional.

Using dried figs, coconut, and slivered almonds is an unusual mix and it works brilliantly to give a very moist, moorish biscuit.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus soaking of figs and refrigeration
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Makes: About 18 slices

Ingredients
1 cup dried figs, soaked in cup water for 12 hours
2 cups blanched slivered almonds
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Pinch of salt
Sweetener-either stevia (about 12 drops), coconut syrup, or agave syrup-1-3 tsps

Method
Pulse the almonds in a food processor or blender, making sure they are not too fine. I ran out of blanched almonds, so had to mix ordinary almonds in with it.


soaking,dried,figs


Add the coconut, stevia, and salt, and pulse.

Next add in and pulse the figs with some, or all of the liquid until it is a moist, but not wet consistency.

Thanks Finy for this recipe. I was diagnosed with copper poisoning (1in 30,000) about a year ago and am looking for new ways with my limited food items. Can you come up with some savory biscuits using coconut flour? You are such a culinary champion. I have tried but the biscuits I make stick in my mouth!
Hi Finy, I tried these last night ! They turned out really well. I did not add any sugar at all.
I love figs and this looks like a great way to get some almonds down my system. I am going to try this recipe :)
If you like it sweeter, put in more sweetener, but I thought that it tasted OK with not a lot! Also keep in fridge. Let me know what you think!
regards
