I hope you’ll forgive me for not being super active on the blog this week! As of last Friday, BigBear and I are in Hawaii to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary! I’ll be posting photos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram this week using the hashtag #BigBearGoesToHawaii so be sure to follow along!
But so that you don’t get lonely while we’re away, I’ve got a wonderful guest blogger today to share a recipe for Homemade Fig Newton Bars with you! I’ve been a fan of Renee’s for a while now and I always love her recipes and her custom painted glasses! She’s the amazing artist that painted the cover of “Gifted, A Donovan Circus Novel” on a glass for my high school BFF, Liz, back when Liz published her first novel and Renee painted my “Big Bear’s Wife” Wine glass and tile!! Everything she does is just beautiful!
Thank you so much Renee for guest posting for me!!
So without wasting anymore time, I’ll turn this post over to Renee!!

I’ve chosen to make my fig newtons with a healthier alternative to granulated sugar by using coconut palm sugar. If you choose not to use the coconut palm sugar, that’s totally OK as I know not everyone stocks coconut palm sugar as a regular pantry item. If you do swap it out, use the granulated sugar in the same amounts as the coconut sugar. I’m 100% positive your results will be just as delicious. — Renee
