Tuck one of these easy-to-make bars into your backpack when you go hiking for instant energy.
8 dried figs
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp poppy seeds, plus extra to garnish
Grind the figs in a food processor until they form a ball, about 1 min. Transfer to a bowl. Add the walnuts and cranberries to the processor and grind coarsely. Add to the figs along with the sunflower seeds, almond butter, and poppy seeds.
Knead the mixture until all ingredients are combined. Form into a 7x4-inch rectangle. Cut into 6 bars, sprinkle with extra poppy seeds and wrap each bar in parchment paper. Chill for at least 30 min., or until set.
