Author: Amanda Nicole Smith

Ingredients

  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/8 cup coconut nectar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Crust

  • 1.5 cups dried figs; turkish or mission
  • 1/2 cup walnuts

Instructions

  • Cut off the fig stems, and half them.
  • Blend together the walnuts and figs until it starts to stick together.
  • Pat the crust down firm into a 8x6 glass dish.
  • Blend together peanut butter, coconut oil, coconut nectar and sea salt; if your peanut butter is unsalted, and pour it on top of the crust.
  • Freeze the bars for an hour or until hard; store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

Check the sweetness of the peanut butter filling. To amp up the sweetness use 1/4 cup coconut nectar, or an 1/8-1/4 cup of agave or honey for a different kind of sweet.
If your figs are super dry, soak them for 15 minutes or until they start to soften a bit.
