When you adhere to a raw vegan, you need snacks that fill you up and taste good. You don’t want to eat snacks that taste bland or drink beverages that taste like lawn clippings. We strive to provide all of you with recipes that have incredible depth of flavor. The worst thing you can do while cleansing is eat tasteless or boring meals and snacks. Not only does that make you disinterested in raw vegan foods, but it also increases your likelihood of cheating with unhealthy foods.

These homemade fig bars are filling and unlike store bought versions, they do not contain artificial flavors, preservatives, or added sugars. You know the ones, right? The brand name rhymes with Schmig Toopins. Separately, figs and almonds are nutritious snacks that you can enjoy any day of the week. Each of these foods provides a unique set of nutrients that can help you meet your daily nutritional needs. Together,

Now, you won’t be using fresh figs for these fig bars, though. You’ll use dried figs, and we recommend that you get dried Smyrna figs for optimum flavor. The kiss of citrus that you get from the orange zest in every bite is simply wonderful. And the best part about these fig bars is that you don’t get the inevitable sugar crash that comes from store bought varieties. The reason for this is because these contain fiber, healthy fats, and protein without the added sugars that cause blood sugar spikes. Just don’t go crazy on them because they aren’t low in calories.

Homemade Citrus Fig & Almond Bars
  • Prep Time:15m
  • Total Time:15m


  • 1 c raw almonds
  • 18 dried Smyrna figs, stems removed
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • zest of 1 orange


  1. Add the almonds to a food processor and pulse until you achieve a somewhat fine flour. Add the sea salt and orange zest and pulse a few more times to combine.
  2. Turn the processor on and start adding the figs, one at a time, until you finish adding all of them. You are finished blending when the mixture resembles a dough-like consistency.
  3. Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment paper. Spoon the blended mixture into the pan and press firmly and evenly with your hands or a rolling pin. It should be relatively the same thickness across the pan.
  4. Cut into about 10 large or 20 small bars and place in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden.
  5. Remove from the freezer and then remove the bars from the pan. Separate them and store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks, or in the freezer for two months.
