So these Healthy Soft Vegan Fig And Nut Bars are so delicious and healthy! If you are a lover of soft dessert, like cookies etc, then you will love these fig bars. They actually have texture from the nuts, so they are not completely soft.
Just be careful with the figs, once you soak them in hot water to soften, please make sure you take the stems off because there is nothing worse than biting into this yummy bars and having to chew on a hard fig stem!
But sure, if you like dates or have dates, simply use dates to make this recipe!
It’s really simple and quick to make these, all you need is:
Mixed nuts of your choice, I used pecans, almonds, and walnuts!
Dried fruit, dates or figs, even raisins
That’s it! Only 5 ingredients.
Now, you can either chop the nuts into small pieces or be lazy (like me) and simply add them to a high-speed blender or a food processor and pulse them for a few seconds, which should break them a bit! Job done.
I made these fig bars in a round tin, so the slices looks like a big cake really. If you warm the slice in the microwave, then dollop ice cream or coconut cream, it will make the ultimate healthy dessert!
