My baby loves those whole grain fig bars by Nature’s Bakery that you can buy at Costco. I confess, I love them too. They are sooo yummy and easy for my baby to eat. I just hand her one and she takes care of business. We buy them instead of Nutrigrain bars because the ingredients are non-GMO and dairy free. Anyway, I wanted to experiment and figure out how to make a similar treat. Now I have to admit, I sorta failed. They look nothing like a fig bar and more like a dessert. My husband said they taste more like a Larabar, but we all enjoyed them so I’m calling it a success.
Ingredients for the filling:
2 c strawberries fresh or frozen (thawed slightly)
1 tsp honey
1 to 3 tbsp chia seeds (Just throw in a good amount)
Ingredients for the crust:
1 1/2 c unsweetened coconut
1 1/2 c almonds
dash of sea salt
11 pitted prunes
Crust was adapted from this recipe for Key Lime Bites.
