Taylor Marie's Fig Bars

These homemade fig bars taste just like the real deal, but better! The only fig bar I'm used to eating are those that come wrapped in plastic and full of a ton of artifical ingredients. These fig bars are made from simple ingredients and the sweetness comes from the figs rather than a ton of added sugar. As an added bonus they are gluten free and vegan which makes them a perfect snack to bring to any gathering. If I were you, I would head over to the grocery store and pick up some dried figs to make this super tasty recipe. Happy baking!

What you need: makes 12

 

FOR THE FILLING:
  • 1 1/2 cups dried figs (just a few short of a whole container at Trader Joe’s!)

  • Juice from 1/2 lemon

  • 1/4 cup nut milk

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

FOR THE CRUST:
  • 2 cups almond flour

  • 2 tbsp coconut flour

  • 2 tbsp flax meal

  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/8 tsp sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

 

What to do: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. 

  2. Add filling ingredients to a food processor and blend until you have a paste. Set aside. (I recommend cutting your figs up in small pieces to make the blending process easier)

  3. In a mixing bowl, combine crust ingredients with a spatula until you have a thick, smooth dough. 

  4. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and spread out HALF of the crust mixture to the edges.

  5. Add the filling on top, spread evenly, and then add the rest of the crust mixture on top of that. 

  6. Bake for about 30 minutes and let cool on a rack before cutting. Will stay good in fridge for several days.
