Ingredients

  • ½

    cup slivered almonds, toasted and divided

  • 1

    cup dried figs, stems removed

  • ½

    cup pitted dates

  • 1

    tablespoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1

    teaspoon grated orange zest

Directions

Place almonds in a food processor and finely grind; set aside. Add figs, dates, vanilla, cinnamon and orange zest. Pulse until dried fruit breaks down and mixture is sticky. Add 2 tablespoons of the ground almonds and pulse until incorporated. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Use a teaspoon to scoop out bite-sized portions of the paste. Roll the mixture into small log shapes, then roll the logs in remaining ground almonds. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days. Freeze in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
