Hazelnut Fig and Sage Crackers with Honey Walnut Spread

Years ago, when I first started experimenting with raw food recipes, I would take ingredients and throw them together hoping they would turn out. I had some successes and some disasters. Over the years, I have developed almost a sixth sense in regards to ingredients. I can read a recipe and know how it will taste when it is done. This developed skill/gift has become invaluable when writing my own recipes. Now, my top concern is bringing you exciting and beautifully balanced flavors, with some delightful surprises along the way.



I happened upon a big bag of organic dried figs when I was shopping the other day. I threw it in my cart, knowing that I would figure out something to do with them when I got home. I have been wanting a new raw cracker recipe, and looking at the figs I thought, why not? I had sage in the dehydrator and hazelnuts sitting on the counter. It all came together in a flash. Hazelnuts, figs, sage and cracked pepper. You can eat these alone or combine them with the honey walnut spread. They make a great snack or a beautiful appetizer for your holiday table!

    These are delicious!!! Separate and together!

    The crackers could have even more flavor. I will definitely make these again, and next time I’ll make sure to activate the sage by rubbing it, and I’ll probably put more sage and fig in. The cinnamon is great, very subtle so they could be used with a savory spread, too.

    And this spread is outstanding! I kept checking on it in the cuisinart and just let it go until it got super smooth, which probably took around five minutes.

    I love how, with no empty calories, such a small amount is needed. Instead of an entire box of ritz and tub of allouette, i can eat 3 of these crackers with ~5 tablespoons of spread and be so satisfied! And feel great!!! Thank you for the beautiful recipe!

    I made these crackers with some modifications. I used walnuts instead of hazelnuts and used dried lavender buds instead of the dried sage. Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for an amazing recipe!
