Vegan Cinnamon Berry Fig Bars | Oil-Free, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Fat-Free, Dairy-Free

Well friends, it is officially the first day of fall. I am so looking forward to all the things this season brings – chunky knit sweaters, homemade soups, cool evenings at the park, orange colored trees, and baking like it’s my job. This is such a comforting time of year. I wanted to kick it off with a new recipe, so I got my little 3 year old sidekick in the kitchen and we came up with these – cinnamon berry fig bars. The perfect “first day of Autumn” breakfast.

Ingredients:

3 ripe organic bananas

1 1/4 cup organic gluten-free oats
1/4 tsp natural salt
1 tsp organic baking powder
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 cup mixed frozen berries
2-3 figs

To a large bowl, add:

3 ripe organic bananas
1/2 cup organic unsweetened applesauce
1 1/4 cup organic gluten-free oats
1/4 tsp natural salt
1 tsp organic baking powder

Mix well. Spoon half the oat mixture onto parchment paper and spread into desired shape.

Next, to your food processor add:

1 cup blended frozen berries (I used pomegranate, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries)
2/3 figs (fresh or dried)
Blend on high until all if combined and easily spread.

Spoon your berry mixture in top and spread evenly.IMG_5904.PNG

Add the rest of your oat mixture in top and spread to cover the berry layer. Bake at 375F for 30-35 mins or until firm in top.

Let cool and then cut and serve!

Hope you all enjoy them as much as we did this morning. Happy fall to each of you – from my little one and me!

    1. That’s so nice Marlene, thank you!! I’m such an obsessive baker, I’m constantly trying new things – some are successful, and others not so much, haha! But I love experimenting in the kitchen with my daughter. I just use my iphone and usually edit in my instagram app! 🙂 I hope you have a great Tuesday Marlene!

  4. I am excited to look at your site more! Your recipes look scrumptious! This one stuck out to me as something to serve my four kids on a school morning. We eat a lot of oatmeal, and sometimes they go on an oatmeal strike, leaving me searching for other alternatives. Thanks again.
