I like the flavor of the coconut with the figs, it "tones" down the fig taste !!!
My niece LOVED these - she couldn't stop eating them !!!! My brother thought they tasted like the inside of a fig newton. These are not real sweet bars.
1 cup dried Black Mission Figs
1 cup brown rice cereal
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 cup dried dates
2 Tbsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Quaker old fashioned oats
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 very ripe banana, mashed
Blend dates and figs in a blender until desired consistency. I leave some chunks of dates and figs, it makes the bars chewier.
Then mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Press into an 8x8 pan. Put in fridge overnight to firm. These have more flavor the next day, and the next day.....
My favorite food processor is the KitchenAid 7-Cup Food Processor.
For blenders, I use both the Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God
