Four ingredients, low fat, no sugar added - and delicious!
...Oh yeah, and did we mention: they're pretty dang easy to make.

Makes 12 cookies

- Ingredients -
2 cups almond flour
¼ cup almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 oz fresh figs (or blueberries, or chopped strawberries - no water needed in this case)
1 cup water

- Tools -
Weston Manual Food Grinder
Weston Dehydrator

Combine the almond flour, milk, and vanilla to create a dough. Set aside.

Grind together the figs and water with your Food Grinder. To do this, add a quarter cup of water at a time. You should end up with an easily spreadable paste.

Pureed fig filling for our cookies

Roll the dough out over a piece of parchment paper, creating a long, narrow, rectangular sheet. You will want the sheet to be about 6" across - length doesn't matter. You can use a pastry cutter to cut the dough into a perfect rectangle if you like. If your dough sticks to the rolling pin, place a sheet of plastic wrap over top of it before rolling it out. Spread the fig down the middle third of the dough sheet, about ¼" thick.

Fold each side into the middle.

Use a pastry cutter or butter knife to cut the fig newton roll into 2" pieces.

Place the pieces onto the tray of your Dehydrator, then dehydrate at 110 degrees for two days, or until the fig center is firm and the cookie is soft, but dry.
