Recipe: Fig, Pistachio and Prune Bars

They're jam-packed with flavour and essential nutrients.

Prune Bars, snack recipe, Jacqueline Alwill, The Brown Paper Bag Nutrition

For this recipe I’ve combined a few of my favourite flavours in the kitchen to create a slice-brownie scenario, which is a delightful change from chocolate flavours of cacao and super sweetness of dates. But, it still provides a deliciously rich flavour and a whole heap of fibre too (can’t say I didn’t warn you here!). We need a good dose of fibre in our day, because it helps stabilise energy levels, appetite and supports the healthy of our cardiovascular and digestive system.

Fig, Pistachio and Prune Bars

Serves 6


1/2 cup walnuts

1/2 cup shelled pistachios

1/2 cup prunes 

1/2 cup dried figs

1/4 cup unsweetened carob powder


Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender and blend for 30 seconds until the mixture comes together. Line a small loaf tin (10x15cm) with baking paper and press the mixture into the tin. Use the back of a spatula to create an even finish. Place in the freezer to set for 1 hour, then slice and serve. Store in fridge or freezer up to 2 weeks.
