No-Bake Coconut Fig Chunks Of Energy
If there is one culinary trend from the last year that I kept spotting, it was the popularity of power snacks. Easy, small, no-bake, healthful bites, balls, bars and chunks of food for quick snacking. I developed these tasty fig energy bites for my friends 10 year old daughter who's a killer athlete and needs healthy easy-to-eat snacks.

  • Step 1

    Line a 9×9 baking pan or loaf pan with parchment paper, allowing enough for overhang on the two larger sides. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Using a kitchen mixer, such as a Cusinart fitted with a blade attachment, add the figs, dates, walnuts, 2 tablespoons coconut, oats, almond butter, chocolate chips, flax feeds, vanilla extract and salt. Mix on high for 1-2 minutes until well blended. The mixture should resemble coarse sand as shown in the photo above.

  • Step 3

    Place the mixture into the prepared pan. Using a small glass or jar, press the mixture firmly and evenly making it as flat and uniform as possible. Refrigerate for 1 hour to set.

  • Step 4

    To finish the power bites, place about 1/2 cup of shredded coconut on a small plate and set aside.

  • Step 5

    Gently lift the parchment paper out of the pan and place on a cutting board. Using a slicer knife, cut into small, 1-inch squares. Roll the bites in shredded coconut evenly to coat.

  • Step 6

    Store the power bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should keep fresh for up to two weeks.
