Homemade Fig Newtons with Cinnamon Cashew Butter- gluten, dairy, and sugar free

We have been snacking on these goodies all week and they seem to get tastier everyday. The muffins turned out chewy and dense- just like a real fig newton. The best part is that these muffins are only sweetened with natural fruit and contain no gluten. The Cinnamon Cashew Frosting is to die for and pairs perfectly with the fig taste.

Homemade Fig Newtons
3 cups of fresh figs (makes about 2.5 cups of fig puree)
1 1/2 cups of gluten free flour mix
1/2 cup chickpea flour
2 organic eggs, beaten
1/4 cup olive oil
2 TBSP flax seed
1 tsp baking soda
dash of salt

Cinnamon Cashew Frosting
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup water (enough water to just cover cashews in blender)
1 TBSP agave
dash of cinnamon

1. Puree figs.
2. Add eggs, olive oil, flax seed, and salt; set aside.
3. Add flours and soda.
4. Blend for about 30 seconds and pour into muffin cups.
5. Bake at 185C for 25-30 minutes.
6. While muffins are baking make frosting by pureeing all ingredients in a blender.
7. Once muffins are cool top with Cinnamon Cashew Frosting.
