Gluten Free Coconut Fig Granola Bars

Gluten Free Fig Stuffed Granola Bars
A Tasty little snack, for dessert or breakfast! I choose breakfast, but I like desserts for breakfast.

1st start by soaking the dried figs to re-hydrate. Makes them easier to mix into the ozzy filling :)

 Use your food processor to finely chop toasted nuts

Mix nuts with and dates to blend into a "dough" Press the dough into a 9x9 pan lined with parchment paper. 

Mix the soaked figs with coconut oil and maple syrup into a paste and fill the pan.

Toast up the coconut. Toasted is always better. At least to me.

Press cooled coconut on the top of the fig mix. Pop in the fridge.

Look at these layers of gooey fig jam between nuts and coconut. It is soo good. Slice, eat and enjoy.

Nut layer:
1 cup almonds
1 cup walnuts
1/4 cup cashews
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup pitted dates
1/4 cup coconut oil

Toast all of the nuts. Let cool. Process with the salt, dates and coconut oil to form a cookie crust layer. Press into the lined pan.

Fig Filling:
2 cups figs with stems removed
1 cup hot water to soak
3 TBSP Maple Syrup
1TBSP melted Coconut Oil

Soak figs in hot water. Drain water. **save the water. it's so good.
Mix with maple syrup and coconut oil into a jam filling

1/2 cup toasted coconut.

That's it. Press onto the fig layer and eat :)
