Packed with good fats and energy, choc almond figs are the ultimate indulgence in the hills. The only downside is that they are so moreish it’s hard to stop eating them.

Makes 10
Prep time 15min
Cost $8- $10

10 dried figs (soft eating variety)
1⁄3 cup almond butter
¼ cup dark chocolate
¼ cup coconut threads

Using a small sharp knife, make slits in the sides of the figs and push a teaspoon into them to open up a space inside. Melt chocolate in a small bowl and set aside.

Stuff the figs with about a ½-1tsp of the almond butter, then dip the opened part of the fig in the melted chocolate. Sprinkle the chocolate with coconut threads and place on a lined tray. Repeat until all the figs are done. Transfer to freezer for 5min to set. Store in an airtight container.
