15 figs, stems removed and roughly chopped
10 dates, roughly chopped
1⁄2 cup walnuts, soaked or dry
1⁄2 cup almonds, soaked or dry
1⁄2 cup pecans, soaked or dry
1⁄8 cup raisins (I used golden)
2 tsp maca powder
1⁄8 tsp salt
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract*
1 Tbsp cacao nibs2 Tbsp unsweetened dried coconut flakes
Blend together in your food processor. Shape into whatever your heart desires (I chose to honor the fig newton- an old favorite of mine) and place in freezer or refrigerator for at least an hour. I prefer them in the freezer, but know that they will lose 30% of their nutrients in there.
*no worries if you don't have alcohol-free vanilla. The other stuff will work too!
