I was so excited to snap up some extra plump and dark fresh figs. I have never seen them or tasted them in non-Newton form! I was so surprised to find that figs au natural taste absolutely nothing like they do when they are smashed into a sugary jam and covered with cakey cookie-ness.
I expected them to have a grainy texture, since that's the dominant feel in Fig Newtons, but they were actually very smooth, and definitely sweet enough on their own without any added sugar.
Of course, I have been including them as often as possible in my eats...
Perfect with peanut butter.
And what better way to jazz up a CCC than with some of these babies?
In the mix:
- 1/2 c. cottage cheese
- 1/2 packet SunCrystals
- Kashi Cinnamon Heart to Heart
- Quaker Oat Squares
- peanut butta
This was so good! Call me crazy, but I continue to love my cottage cheese, and any possible creation that contains it! Lovin the jiggy figgies, too. How would you guys eat the figs?
Happy Thursday! It's my Friday, and you better believe I can't wait for the weekend! Stay tuned for a tea-riffic Freaky Food Friday tomorrow! xoxo
