Ingredients

    Filling:

    8 ounces dried apricots
    4 ounces dried figs
    2 tbsp. silvered or chopped almonds
    1 tbsp. agave nectar
    2 tbsp. water
    1 tbsp. lemon juice
    1/4 tsp. cinnamon
    1/8 tsp. ginger

    Crust:

    1 cup regular or quick oats, ground in blender until fine
    1 cup regular or quick oats, uncooked
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    4 ounces unsweetened apple sauce
    3 tbsp. agave nectar
    1/4 cup water

    Icing (optional):
    3 tablespoons powdered sugar
    lemon juice
    vanilla or almond extract

Directions

Snip off the figs' stems, and put the figs, appricots, and almonds into the food processor. Grind to a coarse paste. Stir in the remaining filling ingredients and process until mixed. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 F. Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir in the wet ingredients, mixing well to a thick consistency. Press half the crust mixture into the bottom of an oiled, eight-inch square cake pan (use a wooden spoon or your hands). Spread the fig mixture evenly over the crust. Smooth the remaining crust mixture over the filling. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.

Mix powdered sugar with a little water (Start with 1/2 tsp.) until the right consistency. Add vanilla or almond extract to taste (just drops). Drizzle over top of bars before cutting.
