Sugar Plums

Sweeten your day with some modern-day sugar plums!   

These sugar plums aren’t made of hard sugar like in the old days. Instead, a nutritious combo of dried fruit and nuts make for a clean treat. They’re also paleo and Whole 30 approved! (you can totally exclude the vanilla extract if you are sticking to the rules).

 Makes: approximately 2 dozen

 What you’ll need:

 2 cups toasted, unsalted slivered almonds

1 cup dried figs

1 cup dried apricots

¼ cup raw honey

Zest of 1 orange

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

*Optional: Raw sugar or confectioner’s sugar for rolling

 

Preparation:

1. Combine all ingredients in food processor.

2. Pulse until the mixture starts to combine and resembles a rough mince.

3. Measure out heaping tablespoons of mixture and shape into balls.

4. Optional: roll into raw sugar for an extra sparkle or confectioner’s sugar to look like mini snowballs!

 Store in an airtight container.
