I usually use dates to sweeten my dessert recipes, but I chose dried figs for this one. I paired the figs with chocolate and pumpkin seeds and it turned out to be a winning combination.

Recipe Steps

Step One

The only real prep you have to do for this recipe is to cut off the hard little stems that are on dried figs. I also chopped them in half just to make it easier for the food processor to do its work and get these Easy No-Bake Chocolate Fig Bars from the processor to my mouth as fast as possible!

Step Two

Combine the figs, seeds, and coconut oil in the base of a food processor. I really like the Breville Sous Chef

Step Three

Process the ingredients until they start to break down and stick together, about 30-45 seconds.

Step Four

Next, press the mixture into a glass baking dish like so.

Step Five

The next step is to melt a cup of chocolate chips in the microwave (see my notes in the recipe card) and spread out the melted chocolate on top (lick the spoon!!!).

Then, place the bars in the freezer so the chocolate topping can harden.

It literally only took 10 minutes for the chocolate topping to harden in the freezer enough to make them ready to cut and serve. 

These are seriously the easiest and the best dessert ever.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped dried figs
  • 1 cup + 1 teaspoon pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup + 1 teaspoon dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Grease a 8” x 8” square glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine the chopped figs, 1 cup pumpkin seeds, and coconut oil in the base of a food processor. Pulse on high for about 1 minute, or until the ingredients have combined.
  3. Carefully remove the blade from the bowl of the food processor and use your hands to press the mixture firmly and evenly into the glass baking dish.
  4. Next, melt 1 cup of the chocolate chips in a double-boiler or in the microwave. If you use the microwave, use a glass bowl and heat the chocolate chips in 30 second intervals, stopping to stir every 30 seconds. It will take about 2 minutes total to melt the chocolate chips in the microwave.
  5. Pour the melted chocolate over the mixture in the glass bowl and use a spatula to spread the chocolate evenly over the bars. Sprinkle on the extra pumpkin seeds and chocolate chips on top.
  6. Place the bars in the freezer for 10 minutes for the chocolate to harden.
  7. Serve cold and keep the leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week.
