So, what did I do with the Ficoco?
So remember this post where I asked you all about what I should do with my lovely Ficoco samples? LOVED all your ideas and have printed them out for future reference (i.e. when I don’t have so much on my plate…).
I was eager to try it though and the other day had a brainwave about how it should be used – in Super Charge Me cookies, which call for almond butter. I thought the Ficoco would be a perfect substitute…
Neil, however, had other ideas and wanted to eat it on an English muffin:
My verdict? The sharpness of the figs is a perfect pairing with the sweet apricots and chocolate chips. I will use it again instead of the almond butter, no question. The thing is, I baked these so as to have healthy treats around the house to stop me from getting into the Hallowe’en candy but I don’t think they would count as healthy if you ate, like 6 of them… (or would they?)
