Ohhhhh my gosh, it's already March!? February was full of turmoil as we scrambled to find new housing, which we did thankfully. So sorry that the blog was neglected last month. We're all settled in our new place now and I'm back in action in the kitchen. And that means I finally get to share these vegan fig bars with you! Seriously - they are so yummy, just like the store-bought version of my youth. Sweet dried figs with bright sweet citrus, wrapped in a oat-spelt cookie crust. There's only 2 tbs of maple syrup added to this recipe, because dried figs are so naturally sweet on their own. Not to mention they are a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals. I've been packing these in iley's school lunches and he loves them. And papa and I can't keep from sneaking them for ourselves...so good with a cup of tea.
Oh, and my big news is that I made my first recipe video (!!!), featuring these delicious figgy treats. I've embedded the video in this post and would be honored if you'd take a gander. Bear in mind it's my first one, so I'm hoping they will get better from here on out. For a shy introvert like myself, this is a big deal, so please excuse my use of "um's and and's", hehehe. I will also make them much shorter, this one got a bit longer than I would have liked. Thanks so much for following my cooking adventures and trying my recipes. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
