5 Ingredient No-Bake Fig Newton Bites {Gluten Free, Vegan & Paleo} Recipe

From the Page

One item that would appear in the pantry from time to time was fig newtons. (PS: Did you know they aren’t called fig newtons anymore? They are now called Newton Cookies – fig flavor. The good news is that my no-bake version doesn’t require you to turn on the oven and is jam-packed with sweet fig flavor. My sugar-loving husband and toddler made a bee line to these beauties and couldn’t stop eating them which is always a good sign. As an added bonus, each bite is full of heart-healthy omega 3 fats from the walnuts and flax seed plus a good dose of protein to keep blood sugars stabilized. Figs are also an excellent source of fiber, potassium and B vitamins. What is your favorite childhood cookie? I’d love to hear from you. Ingredients 3 cups dried figs - hard stems removed 1 cup walnuts halves ¼ cup flax seed meal 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract ½ teaspoon salt Instructions Place all ingredients in a large food processor and pulse until finely chopped, almost the consistency of sand. This may take 4-5 minutes. Remove blade and put aside. Scoop mixture out one at a time using a small ice cream scoop. Form mixture into balls by rolling in between your hands. Enjoy room temperature or refrigerate in an air-tight container for up to 7 days. Notes Don't be afraid to press the mixture tightly together with your hands when forming balls. As the heat of your hand warms up the mixture, the natural oils in the walnuts will release helping to bind the balls.
