Flippin fantastic fudgy fig slice.

If you like figs, you will dig this a lot. If you don’t like figs, like Ali, you will still dig this.
It’s very simple to make and no baking required which is awesome in that: you don’t have to wait around before you get stuck in, you save some gas/electricity, you don’t cook any of the goodness out of it aaaand you don’t have to wait around before you get stuck in…
I found this recipe on a great blog byEmily at This Rawesome Vegan Life and just added a few things.

Here’s what I did:

First, soak two heaping cups of dried figs for two hours or longer

For the base of the slice:

Process until quite fine:
1 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup walnuts
Add and process until sticky:
3/4 cup dates
1/3 cup raisins (sultanas)
1tsp cinnamon

Press into a shallow pan.


For the friggen fantastic figgy centre:

Process in the blender:

two heaping cups of soaked figs
juice of half a lemon
1/2 cup of coconut flakes
1-2 tsp cinnamon

Use the soaking water to facilitate blending. Pour thick figgy goodness onto the prepared base (leave about a 1/3 cup in the blender for the topping)

For the crumbly oat topping:

Add to the blender with the remaining figs:

1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of walnuts

Pulse lightly. Stir in an extra:

1/2 cup of oats
1/2 cup of coconut flakes.

I mixed it up with my fingers and then kind of crumbled it on top and pressed it down. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon.

Now slice and enjoy right away or practice some self control and chill it in the fridge for a bit first.


…Or have some right away and more later once it has chilled. It does get even nicer the longer it sets in the fridge.
