Spiced Fig Bars

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 8 bars 1x


  • 10 dried figs
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 3/4 C pecans, chopped
  • 1/4 C shredded coconut, plus extra for topping (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


  1. Cut the stems off of the figs and add to a food processor with the coconut oil. Turn on the food processor and allow it to run until the ingredients are well incorporated and you end up with a paste.
  2. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and add the pecans, coconut, coconut flour, vanilla, and spices. Knead the mixture together with your hands. Don’t worry if you have a few pecans that don’t want to stick.
  3. Line a sandwich sized storage container with parchment paper. Alternatively, you can use an 8×8 baking dish for thinner bars.
  4. If you had any pecans or coconut that did not stick to your mixture, sprinkle them over the parchment paper. Firmly press the kneaded fig mixture into the container.
  5. Press toppings onto mixture, if desired then cut into 8 bars. If they feel a little soft, it might be easier to chill them before cutting.
  6. Eat! Store leftovers in the fridge.
