Leslies 'on the run' snack bars


Fig & dark chocolate snack bars



We all love a date, but in this recipe we decided to give them a wee break and add in a fig or two.


200 grams dried figs

140 grams sunflower seeds

50 grams oats

1 tbsp coconut oil, or walnut oil or hazelnut oil

2 tbsp dark chocolate sprinkles

1 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

Pinch of salt

Dark chocolate, for topping


Soak the figs in hot water for 30-60 mins, until soft. Drain and lightly squeeze the figs to release any excess water.

Blend (in a food processor) the sunflower seeds and oats for 30 seconds approx. Add the figs, spices, chocolate sprinkles and oil and blend until it forms a ball of dough.

Line a small square tin with parchment paper. Press the dough into the tin, firmly and as evenly as possible. Place in freezer for approx. 1 hr until it has set. Remove and drizzle with the melted dark chocolate. Cut into desired size squares. Store in fridge or airtight container.
