Ingredients

Instructions

Preheat oven to moderate (180degC).  Line bottom and sides of a 23cm square square tin with baking paper.
Place the figs in a medium heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to soak 15-20 minutes.
Drain the figs and discard the water. Place figs in the bowl of a food processor or Thermomix, add the banana, vanilla paste,  orange juice and zest and process until smooth.
Add the egg and process until combined.
Spoon mixture into a large mixing bowl.  Stir through the seed mix, walnuts, cranberries, coconut, sesame seeds and dates. Mix well with a wooden spoon to combine.
Sift  the flour, baking powder, bi-carbonate of soda and cinnamon over the dried fruit/seed mixture.  Use a wooden spoon or your hands to mix the dry ingredients through evenly.
Spoon into prepared tin.  Smooth top with a wooden spoon or spatula. Bake 35- 40 minutes. Test with a skewer - if it comes out clean, it's ready.  Remove from oven and leave to cool before cutting into bars or squares. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
