Healthy cinnamon apricot sweets || Sprouted Fig

One of the things I love most about the blogging world is all of the amazing communities and groups for bloggers created by bloggers. Ladies and gentlemen, I am happy to announce that this month I got to join the Recipe ReDux – a group of health orientated food bloggers who each month get a challenge to complete. I’ve been in love with Recipe ReDux ever since I read about it on The Yooper Girls more than a year ago and finally there was a spot for me. Oh, how I feel privileged and I am so happy to finally be a part of this amazing project. Let’s get to it.

 

This month’s assignment:

“We’re repeating last December’s theme due to popular demand: It’s the end of the year and we’re taking a moment to reflect – The Recipe ReDux has been around for 54 months! To celebrate, we’re playing a little party game this month: Grab your nearest cookbook and ReDux the recipe on page 54 or 154.”

I loved this challenge. Quite a while ago I bought the lovely cookbook “Smarta Sötsaker” (Clever Sweets) by Ulrika Hoffer but I’ve only managed to make one thing from it. So this was a great opportunity to try another of the many amazing recipes on healthy sweet treats – all gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. Page no. 54 was these lovely cinnamon and apricot treats. I added in some ginger too – perfect as a healthy Christmas treat.

All of the recipes have a little introduction to them where Ulrika writes about some of the health benefits. For this recipe she writes:

“Apricots and pumpkin seeds are great sources of iron… Figs contains calcium…”

What a great addition to your Christmas table. Merry soon Christmas!
