Fresh Fig Blondies With Sweet Tahini Drizzle

I have seriously been on a fig kick lately and I’ve been incorporating this fruit in to so many different recipes! I typically buy dried figs, but I found fresh figs at Trader Joe’s and I’m hooked. They are sweet, but not too sweet! I’d say they remind me of dates in a way, which I also love. I’ve been wanting to bake something with figs so here they are–so sweet and delicious blondies! These bars are very addicting and if you aren’t figging crazy about the fruit, I think these bars might change your mind.
