Celebrating National Fig Week

For the first time, I noticed dried figs next to the raisins at Walmart. And for under a dollar! It happened to correlate with this week’s National Fig Week!  If you’re like me, when you hear the word “figs” you think of Fig Newtons! So we tried to make homemade ones!

Using the California Fig Advisory Board’s Homemade Fig Bars recipe, we adapted it only slightly.  Instead of making a 9×13 pan, we split them up into muffin tins and we omitted the walnuts.  The result?

Bars that taste like fig newtons… yum!
