      Do you love Fig Newtons? Here’s how to make your own at home fig bars:

      Crust:

      4 tablespoons butter (melted)
      1/2 cup almond flour
      1/4 cup brown sugar 

        Filling:

        7-10 fresh figs
        1/3 cup brown sugar 

          Crumble topping:

          1/3 cup oats (we recommend gluten-free)
          1/3 cup almond flour
          1/3 cup pecans
          1/3 cup brown sugar 
          1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
          2 tablespoons butter (melted)
          Pinch of salt

            How to Make:

            1. Preheat to 350 degrees.
            2. Line an 8x8 baking pan with aluminum foil, lightly spray with baking spray and set aside.
            3. In a small mixing bowl combine the crust ingredients: melted butter, brown sugar and almond flour until a soft dough forms. Add to pan and bake for 6 minutes till the crust is a light crispy brown. 
            4. Place the chopped figs and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring and breaking up the figs. As soon as the mixture begins to simmer reduce the heat to low and stir occasionally. When the mixture resembles a jam (about 20 minutes) remove from heat and allow to cool a few minutes. 
            5. In a blender combine all of the crumble topping ingredients and mix until blended.
            6. Spread the fig mixture over the pre-baked crust (in a square shape) and top with the crumble topping.
            7. Bake for around 20 minutes, let cool and enjoy! 

            We recommend serving warm with a scoop of ice cream!
