For a perfectly healthy mid-afternoon treat, try combining Dried Figs with Tahini and Cacao Nibs – it’s the best!
The fig is moist and oh so sweet, while the tahini is smooth and nutty and the cacao nibs, crunchy on top and full of buzz. Alone these ingredients aren’t so fancy, but together in your mouth, they unite to make a wonderful sensation of flavour and texture.
These little guys are dairy free, yet super high in calcium thanks to the dried fig and tahini. They are high in antioxidants from the raw cacao too. So munching on a couple of these will not only ward of your hunger, but will make you feel great too!
I’ve used tahini because it’s high in calcium and nut free, however, feel free to try this recipe with your favourite nut butter such as macadamia nut, cashew or almond too.
I’ve been knocking back this little snack combo almost daily recently, so I thought I ought to spread the word of just how easy, healthy and good for you it is! So, enjoy x x

Because this recipe takes seconds to prepare, then there’s little need to prep and store, however, if you do wish to do so, then I recommend storing in the refrigerator, all the while being aware that the tahini may slide a little.
