8oz dried figs, stems removed
4oz dates, pitted
2T Hemp seeds
3 drops vanilla extract
1T Honey(Or agave, or rice syrup)
1T orange juice
1/8t ginger, ground
Pop figs, dates and hemp seeds into a food processor and process until coarsely chopped. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until blended.
Or do like me and start out in a food processor, realize it wont work, move to the other food processor and realize that one is broken too. (Who has 2 broken food processors?!) Then chop everything by hand and mash with a spoon.
2/3 c Brown Rice Flour
1/3 c Tapioca Flour
1/3 c Shredded, Unsweetened Coconut
2/3 c Quinoa Flakes
1T Brown sugar
1 1/4 t baking powder
1.5 T Mashed, Canned pear(one pear half)
3T canola oil
3T Honey(or Agave, etc...)
Mix dry ingredients. Add in wet ingredients and mix well. It should all come together in sort of a very thick paste. Press 1/2 the crust into an 8x8 pan, layer with the fig mixture, and press the rest of the crust on top. Bake 20-25 minutes until lightly golden. Allow to cool completely before cutting into 16 bars.
These even got the Cupcake seal of approval.
