So excited to share a super yummy and healthy snack the whole family will enjoy. If you are like me the only time you heard of figs growing up was probably in the popular {highly} processed snacks Fig Newtons. Raw figs are actually incredibly nutritious and are the perfect healthy snack for kids! Figs are known to be high in magnesium, iron, potassium, and calcium and also rich in vitamins A & K. They are sweet like candy and can be eaten by themselves. I decided to put these in cookie form to make them more enticing to my two toddlers, and it worked! You can double or triple this recipe depending how many you want to make. These are the perfect snack for meal prepping and to throw in those lunch boxes during the week, or when your kids come home hungry from school. Either way I hope you give them a try!
