I tend not to snack because I eat very substantial meals in general, but sometimes on the weekend I want a little bite in between brunch and dinner. So, the other day I was feeling a little peckish in the afternoon and thought I’d rummage around in the kitchen for something tasty. Thankfully (in anticipation of this very eventuality) we tend to not keep a single unhealthy item in the apartment, so my choices were severely limited. In fact, so limited that I would have to either cook myself an entire meal from scratch, OR make do with the 3 ingredients lying around that could be eaten without a whole lot of preparation – fresh figs from the farmers market, some Claro’s prosciutto and organic coconut butter.

Who knew those could go together so well – it was quite a pleasant surprise! Super tasty and remarkably satisfying. The perfect combination of protein, carbohydrate and fat in just a few delectable bites.

And no cooking involved!

These would make great little finger foods or hors d’oeuvres at parties.
