Vegan Fig Butter Bars

Julie Kelly


These fig butter bars have a nice surprise orange flavor which works so well with the fig flavor. Sweet, but not overly sweet, these little bars are just perfect for an afternoon snack with a cup of coffee or tea.

How to Make Vegan Fig Butter Bars


  1. In a small bowl mix the flaxmeal with the water and set aside.
  2. Cream together the sugar and earth balance until fluffy. Add the orange zest, vanilla and flaxmeal mixture, and continue beating. Add the flour. Mix thoroughly. Form the dough into a big ball with your hands. Wrap it in saran wrap and chill it in the refrigerator for about 2-4 hours.
  3. Once the dough is ready, preheat the oven to 350. Roll out one dough into a large rectangle. Cut dough into four rectangles, width-wise. Spoon out the fig butter onto each piece, spreading it down the center. Make sure you don’t overdo it or it will seep out of the sides. Fold right and left sides toward the middle so that they barely overlap each other. Fold the bottom and top edges of the rectangle in and pinch together. Repeat with other pieces of dough. Slice into about 1-inch pieces. Place on a pre-greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until semi-golden. Let cool and serve.
