All In One Fig Cubes

WP_20160105_021 (3) ()

These cubes have got literally everything I thought would help my digestion. To be honest I wasn’t feeling like making or eating snacks in the middle of low energy level. But sometimes, you just want to push yourself a little, to get to the place where your heart lightens up. So I was almost in a ‘challenging myself’ mode when I made this. Although I made this with the intention of helping my gut by eating, I didn’t feel like eating them at all then. So they are being consumed now I am fully recovered, which is all good! Another reason was the food processor in the house I was staying. I don’t have food processor at home, so just wanted to get the feel of using it again after a long time…Blender and food processor are both good at doing different jobs. I must say I enjoyed using it. If you can recommend a good quality food processor, please let me know. 🙂

However, I ended up using my NutriBullet after I blended the mixture in the food processor, as it didn’t blend quite enough and the mixture didn’t hold together. If you are using a food processor, make sure you blend for a well long time to get a sticky mixture.

Ingredients (makes 32 little cubes):

350g dried figs

70g raisins

70g walnut

30g hazel nut

35g desiccated coconut

35g coconut oil

35g chia seeds

1 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

  1. All you need to do is to blend everything. If your figs are really hard and dry, although I didn’t do this, it may be a good idea to soak them for a few hours before blending to soften them.
  2. Leave to set in the fridge for a couple of hours. Take it out, and cut into cubes.
