    • Thank you! My mom used to make something similar when I was growing up, looks very close to the recipe you used [by the way those look SO delicious. The strawberry gave it a much nicer color than mine… I’ll have to try that next time.] These have quickly become my favorite dessert. Nom nom nom!

  1. Congrats on the post, well done, love the recipe.
    I think we have a lot in common, the way we look at the food and healthy lifestyle. So nice to meet you:)

  2. I clicked over from the New Healthy, and boy I”m glad I did! I have both a fig and date obsession (lets just be honest and call it a sugar obsession I guess).
    These look very delicious :)

  3. Yes, Yes, Yesssss! These look and sound well, perfect. I am putting them on the very top of my ridiculous ‘To Do’ List. I just love your beautiful blog and I’m on my way to Ryan’s right now.
    I made some healthified fig bars not to long ago. They are on my blog, Simply Healthy Family. I would just love for you to stop by or join my humble little blog.
