Description

These Citrus Fig and Almond Snack Bars come together quickly and easily with only 4 ingredients and a food processor! Make this fast and simple recipe today for a healthy breakfast on the go, a perfect road trip snack, or for an afternoon energy boost at school or work.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 C raw almonds (skins on is fine)
  • 1820 dried Smyrna figs (Turkish or Calimyrna), stem removed
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • Zest of 1 large orange

Instructions

  1. Food process almonds into a somewhat fine flour (Don’t process too long, or you’ll end up with almond butter!).
  2. Add salt & orange zest; pulse a few times.
  3. With the food processor running, gradually add figs ,1 at a time, until 18 have been added. You want the mixture to end up sticking together, and it should start to ball up a bit in the processor. If your mixture is too dry, continue adding a couple more figs, one at a time, until desired texture is reached.
  4. Press firmly and evenly into a parchment lined 8″ x 8″ pan. If you like, you can use a small rolling pin to help even out the bars, or you can smooth out the top of the bars with slightly damp fingers.
  5. Remove mixture from pan, and cut into bars (makes 10 large or 20 small for me).
  6. Store refrigerated for the longest shelf life, and keep parchment between bars to keep from sticking together.

Notes

  1. If you’d rather make energy bites or energy balls, just ball up the mixture instead of pressing it into a pan.
  2. If you don’t have orange zest, you can add ¼ to ½ tsp cinnamon instead for a different but still tasty bar!
