Barely Baked Oatmeal Fig Bars {high protein}

These Almond Butter Fig Bars are just barely baked so they keep their deliciously gooey melt-in-your-mouth texture.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c old fashion oats
  • 1/4 c quick oats
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I used PEScience Snickerdoodle 30% OFF code PBCHOCO)
  • 2 tbsp. all natural sugar free maple syrup or sticky syrup of choice
  • 2 tbsp. coconut sugar (I used Better Body Foods)
  • 1/4 c almond butter
  • 12 dried black mission figs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (I used Better Body Foods)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350f and prepare a glass dish or baking pan with parchment paper (mine was about 8x8 inches).
  2. Place your figs, almond butter, vanilla and maple syrup into a food processor or high performing blender on high until almost smooth. (I like small chunks of fig)
  3. In a bowl mix together your oats, protein, coconut sugar and baking powder.
  4. Add your fig/almond butter mixture into the bowl and use your hands to fold the ingredients together until completely incorporated.
  5. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the baking dish.
  6. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  7. Remove and let cool completely before cutting into 9 squares and serving.
  8. Enjoy!
