Elana's Pantry - Fig Newtons

Introduction

Now THAT'S what I'm talking about! Finally, a fig newton that's gluten free, naturally sweetened, and absolutely delicious. I do not use Agave so I replaced it with honey, but the original recipe was agave and yacon syrup in place of the honey. Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!
