Vegan Fig Walnut Squares

Fig, walnuts, and Maldon sea salt. I’ve been eating this combination as a snack for weeks!

I have no idea where the sea salt came in. I guess I was aware of the fact that salty and sweet make a heavenly combination. To take it to the next level of heaven, add chocolate. To really turn this into a crave-it-everyday snack, turn them into bars, drizzle chocolate on top, and finish with fat flakes of salt.

These no-bake bars do require you use a food processor. Don’t have one yet? Go and pick one up! Even the little Cuisinart chopper will do. I think my food processor is my most loved kitchen appliance. It makes my life so much easier, and allows me to make things like these bars, truffles, burgers, and sauces in minutes!

These no-bake bars are great because of the simplicity of making them and the deliciousness of the flavor. These are great on-the-go snacks, or perfect for the kids after school or practice. The sweetness from the dates, figs, and chocolate is offset by the nuts in the bars, and then it’s topped with flaky Maldon sea salt (which is amazing on any chocolatey dessert!).

Vegan No-Bake Fig Walnut Bars

By: Jenné
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 2 cup raw walnuts
  • 2 cup dried figs, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp Maldon sea salt, any large flakes will do


  • Line a small baking dish (mine is 6-cup) with parchment paper.
  • Place walnuts, figs, and dates in the food processor and blend until combined. Be careful not to over blend the mixture. You want to maintain some texture, and crunch.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the baking dish.
  • Melt the chocolate chips in a glass or metal bowl over boiling water, or in a glass bowl in the microwave.
  • While the chocolate is melting, remove the bars from the baking dish, and cut into 12 squares.
  • Drizzle the melted chocolate over the squares.
  • Sprinkle sea salt over the bars.
  • Allow to cool in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes.
  • Break off, and enjoy!

  1. When I made them yesterday, I sprinkled some coconut on top, and used pecans. Oh man, they are good! Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.

    1. Wonderful!! I’m so glad you gave them a try. I love that you used pecans. They’re my favorite nut!!

  2. These look amazing!!! Can I substitute any nut for the walnuts? I’ve been having a lot of walnuts lately and have gone off them for a bit. Can I use pecans or almonds?

    1. These are terrific with any nut. Pecans would be amazing! Thanks for asking, and for reading my blog 🙂

  3. These look sooo delicious, and I can’t wait to make them. Please tell me where I can find Maldon Sea Salt. Thanks so much! 🙂

    1. Thank you Olivia! I hope you enjoy them. You can find Maldon salt at gourmet grocery stores, health food stores (Whole Foods has it), and online. It’s pricier than regular salt, but it lasts a long time, and is so great to have!

  4. Jenne, you are too adorable! These look so delicious, and even though I don’t have figs at the moment, you have certainly spurred some awesome walnut, date, and hmmm ideas in the meantime! Thank you for all you do! Hugs!

      1. Hee hee, yes, and you also spurred reorganization so I can find some room on my measly counter space to work! Right now I have a vat of sauerkraut fermenting, 2 bottles of rejuvelac brewing, a slew of sprouts in all stages of growth (clover broccoli & radish mix, mung beans, lentils, quinoa, and a big bowl of kamut soaking for Essene bread ) cashew and almond cheeses aging, and bag full of garden tomatoes waiting to be made into a fermented salsa! (I’d have a plant based yogurt culturing too to try a different cheese, but I’m waiting for the lacto fermenting to finish first so as not to cross contaminate…lessons learned! LOL!) Who said you can’t eat healthy on a tight budget! You just have to be patient I guess.

  5. These bars look so amazing! I can’t wait to make them. I have never actually used figs before in any recipes so this will be a first!

  6. Oh hello beautiful… Figs 🙂 love all thing fig. I already know this is amazing. Saving this to make soon!
