Raw Fig Newtons
1/2 cup natural almonds, ground
3 cups dried figs, cut up with hard stem-ends removed
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2-3 shakes of sea salt
juice of a large lemon
Grind nuts using s-blade of food processor into coarse flour; dump onto a large piece of wax paper. Place cut up figs, cinnamon and salt in food processor and pulse while adding lemon juice a bit at a time until well incorporated. This should be quite thick. I like to refrigerate it for a couple of hours so it's easier to handle. Divide into quarters and shape each into 7-8" logs; flatten between sheets of parchment or wax paper and roll in the reserved ground almonds. With a sharp knife cut each piece into 4 or 5 portions. Store in fridge.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
