Nutritional values

With the natural sweetness from the dried fruits, there is no reason to add refined sugar to these biscuits! The dried fruits in this recipe are a great source of a variety of vitamins and minerals while the eggs and almonds are an excellent source of protein!

If you want as much fiber as possible, it is best to use figs instead of a mixture of dried fruits. Additionally, the ground almonds can be replaced as desired with ground hazelnuts or walnuts.
