      Awesome recipe! I make them for during and after long ultra marathon training runs. They take a while to release the energy (low GI) and are a bit heavy, but very tasty.

      I'm suprised at how well I love these! The figs I used were extremely dry so I added a few dates and that took care of that problem. I also will use ground flax seed next time because some were still left unground at the end. I also rolled the mixture into balls (about 20) then rolled them in the oat bran. Thanks so much for the recipe.

      These are wonderful bars Jen....but a word to the wise. Make sure you use a 7 cup or larger food processor to make these. This make a very dense type bar. I used Giradelli's dark chocolate chips and raisins for my fruit of choice. Wonderful, just wonderful. I sliced these after refrigeration of several hours and then wrapped individually in plastic wrap and stuck them in a zip-lock baggie for the freezer. That way I'll have them handy for after work-outs. Thanks for a winner/keeper Jen.~ Made for PhotoTag!
