Fig, Plum and Almond Healthy Snack Bars

Fig, Almond and Plum bars

We have been buying healthy snack bars to take with us on the occasions that we are out an about and want to have a snack with us. But they are very expensive, so I took a look at the ingredient list of some wholefood ones we liked, and tried to recreate something similar. These are really easy to make and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 a cup pitted plums (check the ingredients list to make sure you are not getting a lot of additives)
  • 1/2 a cup dried figs
  • 1/2 a cup almonds
  • A little olive oil or coconut oil for greasing

Directions

  1. Place the almonds in a food processor, and using the metal knife blade blend them until the almonds have broken into small chunks. This will take about a minute.
  2. Add the plums and figs to the food processor and blend until the mixture starts to turn into a ball.
  3. Grease a metal sheet (I used the based of a cake tin) with a little olive or coconut oil
  4. Place the mixture onto the metal sheet, and using your hands shape it out into a roughly square / rectangular shape so that you are able to cut it into bars. Make sure you press the mixture together really firmly.
  5. Cut the mixture into bars shapes and remove from the metal sheet (you might need to use a knife to do this)
  6. Store in an air tight container in the fridge or pantry
