Did you know that 1/4 cup dried figs has…
The same calcium as 1/2 a cup of milk.
4 grams of fiber – more than what’s in 1 serving of most other fruits.
325 grams of potassium, which is more than 1 apple (161g), grapes, oranges, and strawberries (which all have around 250g), but less than 1 banana, which has around 554g.
Dried figs are also a great source of vitamin A as well as a pretty good source of the B vitamins. Super fruit! Fig Dough Bites Prep time: 5 mins Total time: 5 mins Serves: ~ 15 balls No bake, all whole ingredients, no added sugar - figgy deliciousness!
