Today I would like to share with you the emergency snack I created last week for my travel. The trip was not very much scheduled and I didn’t prepare anything food-wise. I needed to bring some sort of food with me since I had to travel quite a bit so I created these almond fig bites.
Last month I had to head over to Rotterdam again. I say again, because it was the second time in four weeks that I had to be there. This time I wanted to combine business with pleasure and the weather agreed with me. So I was off for a few lovely days in Rotterdam, which was not a punishment at all because Rotterdam has changed so much for the better in the last few years in terms of (healthy vegan) restaurants. But also the views, the water, the boats, the architecture and the surroundings everywhere are absolutely worth a visit. It’s something totally different than Amsterdam I can tell you. Well, maybe more about that later.
Staring at the content of my kitchen cabinets I realized I could make these ”fig bites”. They were so easy to make and yet so healthy! Did you know that figs and almonds contain calcium and some great minerals?
For these almond fig bites you will only need a few ingredients and a food processor, but a blender will probably also do the work pretty well.
- one cup of almonds
- two cups of dried figs
- one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
- Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until they almost create a bal. Spread out on a plate or baking sheet and let it become firm in the freezer for about two hours. Cut in rounds with a tiny glass. Keep for days in an airtight container in the fridge.
