An easy, no-bake dessert that is grain-free, paleo, and vegan.


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


  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.
