Hazelnut Fig Rolls
I am loving the crisp air of fall. It just feels so fresh and gentle after the pounding heat we’ve had this summer. And with it comes the desire for more warm drinks, like chai and chamomile as well as just a little something to have ‘on the side.’ Hmmmmm…
My son found a packet of fig rolls in the store which reminded me of this forgotten treat. I love the sweet roundness of figs, especially rolled in pastry, and he inspired us to think of an alternative, healthier way to make and enjoy them. Making things at home opens up so many more possibilities for avoiding harmful ingredients and using abundant healthy ingredients. The hazelnuts, for example, which are rich in nutrients including minerals, good fatty acids and antioxidants, and have a number of really excellent benefits, including improving age-related memory loss. Who doesn’t want that?!
These were peacefully simple and just perfect with a warming cuppa. Hope you enjoy them too.
