Awesome Raw Energy Bars with Chocolate Fig Filling (Raw-Vegan)


Raw Chocolate Fig Filling:

Raw Cocoa powder - 1/4 cup
Dried Calimyrna Figs - 8
Himalayan Salt - a pinch

Blend everything together in a high speed blender to make a coarse paste that really binds together. Refrigerate till ready to make the layers.

Raw Energy Bars:

Almonds - 1/4 cup
Pumpkin seeds - 1/4 cup
Sunflower seeds - 1/4 cup
Buckwheat - 1/4 cup
Medjool Dates - 6
Himalayan salt - a pinch
Coconut oil - 1 Tbsn

Blend everything in a high speed blender or food processor to a fine powder. They will all start to bind together. Transfer to a bowl and divide into 2 halves. Press one half of the mixture into a shallow glass dish. Spread the filling layer and then press the other half on top. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour. Slice into bars. Very good before workout or as a quick evening energy snack.
