I loved fig newtons as a kid! How much fun to have a recipe to try!

I've linked up a scrumptious slow cooker recipe that's so easy I could whip it up in my half assembled kitchen.

Hey Girlie! Hope you get settled in soon! Congrats on selling the house :) xo

Those fig newtons look absolutely delicious. I am definitely going to be trying them!


BrittanyAngell June 26, 2011 at 1:58 pm

Thanks SO much Jill :) They are really fun to make.


Isabelle at home June 26, 2011 at 12:12 pm

thank you for hosting! I hope you have a wonderful week! :)


BrittanyAngell June 26, 2011 at 1:56 pm

Thanks Isabelle! Same to you :)

Brittany, do you have any recipes for those of us w/gluten & nut allergies? I'd love to bake some of my favorites but every recipe I've found so far calls for nut flour of some sort…


BrittanyAngell June 27, 2011 at 1:22 am

Hi Barbara- I only have used Almond flour in a few recipes so far- and anything listed "raw" has a good chance of containing nuts. Beyond that I have a number of recipes that do not contain nuts. Take a peak through my recipe list if you are interested. You might consider also checking out the GLuten Free Gigi site- she is Nut Free as well as Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Soy Free! -Brittany-


Eryn June 26, 2011 at 7:16 pm

Thanks for highlighting my watermelon granita! Also, I'm not sure if this is just my computer, but when I clicked on the other highlighted recipes- they all linked back to mine! I really wanted to check them out so I though you might want to know. I found your blog through The Daily Dietribe and have been loving your recipes- my husband has been begging me to make the fig newtons since those are his favorite thing on the planet and he hasn't had the real ones in years :)


BrittanyAngell June 27, 2011 at 1:14 am

Oh thats weird.. I wonder how that happened?? Ill fix it. Thanks so much for letting me know! Iris of Daily Dietribe is wonderful :) She and I are working on a book together right now. If you end up making the fig newtons I would LOVE to hear what you think! Have a wonderful week. xo- Brittany-

Hi Brittany – I finally finished writing up my recipe for this week – so I hope it is ok to submit belatedly, even though I submitted one from my archives earlier as I was worried about not finishing up this post in time. The recipe for this week is a scrummy blueberry,raspberry smoothie with a coconut topping :)
