Fig and Cashew Paleo Bars
Figs are a great source of soluble fibre and provide a natural sweetness, which is much better for our health than added sugar. Enjoy these delicious paleo bars as a healthy snack or dessert over summer. These are vegan, gluten free, dairy free, egg free & paleo as well.

2 cups Flannerys Own Organic Raw Cashews, plus extra for topping
1 cup Flannerys Own Coconut Chips, plus extra for topping
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt, plus extra for topping

2. Pour mixture into a lined baking dish and press down with a fork until mixture is flat.
3. Mix the coconut oil, cacao powder and 1 tsp vanilla together in a small saucepan over a low heat until melted, then pour over the fig and cashew mixture evenly.
