Fig and Nut Bars

Image

Makes 12

Ingredients

Dough:
1 ½ cup oats (or use oat flour for a finer mixture)
1 cup walnuts (or use walnut flour for a finer mixture)
¼ cup honey

Fig paste:
5 dried figs
2 tablespoons stevia
2 tablespoons white chia seeds
3 tablespoons water

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 C. Place oats and walnuts into a food processor, pulse into fine powder. Combine honey and the oat-walnut mixture in a bowl to form the dough. Set aside. Place figs and water into the blender, until a liquid forms. Add in stevia and chia seeds; blend again until chia seeds are broken down. Let the mixture sit in the blender for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, roll out the oat-walnut dough into two rectangles, about 0.5cms thick. Spoon fig paste lengthwise onto the middle of the rectangle, so that the fig paste only covers about 1/3 of the rectangle and that either sides are not filled. Then fold right side over to left. Seal the sides by pressing with a fork. Repeat this for the other rectangle. Place fig rolls into preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes. Allow 15-20 minutes to cool down, before cutting into 12 small pieces.
