Low Fat Raw Vegan Raw Fig Newton Bar Recipe

I was looking around on the Internet for a low fat raw vegan fig newton recipe, but all of them are chock full of fat and oats! (Which can be very damaging to the digestive tract). This low fat raw vegan fig-newton recipe only has 2 ingredients! Plus, there is no need for a dehydrator in this recipe, it’s done in minutes. It is very fast and fuss free, plus it’s LOW-FAT raw vegan. This is my new favorite recipe! IT IS TO DIE FOR. You have to try it. You can find dried figs at most grocery stores. :)

So Here is the super simple, fast easy and INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS low fat raw vegan recipe. It’s my FAVORITE (Probably because I was a die-hard Fig Newton fan as a child. :)

Ingredients for the filling and crust:

  • 21 raw dried figs
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds

Favorite Food Processor: Black & Decker

I’ve had this Food Processor  for 1 year now and it still works perfectly, I highly recommend it!  Plus it’s really inexpensive. I have a vitamix too, but this really comes in handy for sticky or really dense foods. It’s able to continue blending from the way the blades are set up. It comes with a shredding blade, an s-blade and a slicing blade. I used the S-blade in this low fat raw vegan recipe. :)

      Hi Kristin! :)
      That’s hilarious how you were looking for this recipe and then I posted it. I think I have mind-reading powers.

      A lot of dried figs come from poor countries, and they use the sun to dry their product because it’s the cheapest way to do so. Most of them are raw, from what I’ve heard. I got mine at Market Basket.

      As for the sunflower seeds, my friend bought me them on Amazon. You can check there if you want :)
