Recipe: Black Tea and Fig Bites

0

by Nerissa Oden

This is a crunchy fig treat with a slight bitter taste of black tea offset by the sweetness of the figs. Classic flavors that combine to delight, it’s an eyebrow-raising addition to holiday get-togethers.

BLACK TEA AND FIG BITES

DRY INGREDIENTS

2 teaspoons organic black tea (loose, or from tea bags)

2 cups raw, shell-free hemp seeds

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon sea salt

WET INGREDIENTS

1½ cups whole dried Mission figs (about 12 whole figs)

½ cup liquid egg whites (or egg substitute)

1 teaspoon lemon zest

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cover a 12 x 17-inch baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Remove stems from dried figs then combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Start on low speed. As the whole figs break down into smaller pieces, raise to a higher speed to break them down further.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a small mixing bowl.
  5. Gently spoon-drop bite-sized portions of dough 1 inch apart onto the prepared baking sheet. Do not over compress; keep them loose, pushing the mixture off the spoon with your finger.
  6. Bake for 8-12 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool on the pan. The cookies will harden as they cool. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. (Leave some out for Santa, and you’ll be sure to get what you want for Christmas.)
