Raw Fig & Baobab Bars

Raw Fig & Baobab Bars from Eat Smart

We've been looking forward to the launch of YouTube sensation Niomi Smart's debut cookbook ever since it was announced earlier this year. When we discovered Eat Smart features a delicious recipe using our Baobab powder, our excitement reached new heights!   

Here's what Niomi has to say about her tasty Raw Fig & Baobab Bars: " As much as I love healthy nut and fruit bars from health food shops, there’s just nothing quite like a homemade version, and it may be something that you haven’t thought of making yourself before. I love the pop of the fig seeds and the sweetness from the sultanas in these."

Serves 8-10


2 tbsp Aduna Baobab Powder
320g (2 cups) unsulphured dried figs
310g (2 cups) unsalted raw cashew nuts
60g (½ cup) sultanas
30g (¼ cup) sunflower seeds
40g (¼ cup) linseeds


Trim the fig stalks, place the figs in a bowl, cover with water and set aside to soak for 1 hour.

Drain the figs and place all the ingredients apart from the baobab powder in a food processor or blender and blend. Add the baobab powder and blend until totally combined.

Bring the mixture together, then roll out into a large rectangle until about 1cm thick. It will be quite sticky.

Place in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm up, then neatly slice into bars roughly 3.5cm x 10cm and keep in an airtight container in the fridge.
