Beet, Date and Fig Cake Bars (Vegan + Refined Sugar Free)

 

Days are flying by! Am I the only one feeling like that? While I was busy complaining about summer, couple of months flew by right in front of my eyes. I somehow manage to put together a post here, blink and another week is gone! I fail to understand how I ever managed to post more than once a week.

 

dry figs

 

Also I have been not experimenting too much in the kitchen. Most of the days I eat very simple food and fall back family favorite recipes and old favorites of mine.

 

dry figs

 

But after a couple of pre-monsoon showers, Bangalore has cooled down considerably. With cooler mornings and evenings I feel like I am slowly getting my energy back. After a long time I finally felt like baking something!

 

beet puree

 

This recipe was born in an attempt to save some boiled beets that was sitting in the refrigerator. I first thought of the famous beet & chocolate cake but I was looking at eating more nutritious, wholesome snacks rather than desserts. I thought of skipping cocoa all together and baking something without any sugar in it. To make this sweet and healthy I added tons of chopped up dates and dry figs into it. I really wasn’t sure how it would turn out especially because there was so much beet puree in it. To my great surprise it was quite tasty. I am not a fan of dry fruits and nuts so I feel like this is a great way for me to add more of them to my diet. When I crave for something a little sweet, a small piece of this healthy cake bar is perfect.

These bars quite sweet, thanks to all the dry fruits in it. You can reduce the amount of dry fruits used if you want. They are also soft, slightly chewy and crunchy with all those tiny fig seeds. I have refrigerated mine because but if your part of the world is not so hot right now, you don’t have to refrigerate them, just store them in an airtight container.

Notes:

You can pretty much use any dry fruit of your choice here to make different variations of this recipe.

Some nuts could add an interesting texture too.

A couple of table spoons of unsweetened cocoa can make them ‘dry fruit and chocolate cake bars’.

Use any oil of your choice instead of olive oil.

These cake bars are great breakfast or snack options.

 

Beet, Date and Fig Cake Bars (Vegan + Refined Sugar Free)

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp flax seed powder + 3 tbsp water
  • 1 ½ cups boiled pureed beetroot
  • ½ cup chopped dates
  • ½ cup chopped figs
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

 

Peel and cut the beets into small pieces. Boil them till soft with as little water as possible. I pressure-cooked them. You can also roast them. Once cooked, let it cool completely and puree it into a smooth paste.

Pre-heat the oven at 150 degree Celsius.

Combine the flax seed powder with 3 tbsp of water and stir well. Keep this aside to rest.

Chop dates and figs into tiny pieces. .

Place the wheat flour in a big bowl. Add the baking soda, baking powder, vanilla powder and salt to it and stir well. Now pour the beet puree, flax seed mixture and oil. Stir till everything is combined well.  Now add the chopped figs and dates and fold everything gently.

Grease a sheet pan and spread the batter in it. Place it in the preheated oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.

Let it cool completely before you cut it into small squares.

    These look great. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  • Wari

    Hey can I use one egg instead of the flax seed powder?

  • Jayasri

    Interesting combo I do bake with fresh figs and dried nuts but never thought of using beetroot with figs.., colour looks so gorgeous though, love to try this combo… beautiful clicks

  • Rosie

    These sound delicious, and so healthy! Can’t wait to try them. Also, so glad to have found your blog. I decided this year I wanted to make more Indian and vegetarian dishes, and your recipes very off tick both boxes! 🙂

    This is soo delicious!! Very hard to eat just a little. 🙂 THANK YOU (I am going to attempt to make this recipe Gluten Free…wish me luck)

  • melissa @ my whole food life

    These look fantastic! I am trying to get more beets into my diet. Do you think this recipe would still work if I sub applesauce for the oil? Thanks!

  • dixya@food, pleasure, and health

    dry figs sounds like a great addition to the bars. I made granola bars but I wish I made these instead now!!

  • Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

    Yes time is flying much faster these days, weeks turn into months in the blink of an eye!

  • Kankana

    I can imagine how sweet and flavorful it would be with all the dried figs in it. Figs are my fav and I used to eat a bunch of dried ones in India. I don’t know if we get fresh figs in India or not, if you do, give it a try. It’s so better, sweet and creamy and addictive!

  • Nik@ABrownTable

    I love figs and your take with the beets sounds and looks delicious. I planted a couple of fig trees last year and I hope that they give me some fruit soon.

  • Swati Sapna

    I hated beetroots as a kid because they tasted gross when raw and a beetroot sabzi (poriyal style) was just so boring! I have only recently rediscovered the joys of these beets… Beteroot smoothies and spicy sassives are now a part of my weekly menu. And these cake bars are so going to add to the beet repertoire 😀 They look fabulous Chinmayie! I dont like figs much. so maybe beets with dates, almonds and some cocoa? Cant wait to try it!

  • lakshmi

    Surely going to try this. One question :where do you buy dried figs? If possible, please let me know.

  • Brooke (Crackers on the Couch)

    These look so delicious! Good for a breakfast.

  • Kitchen Queen

    first time here, delicious looking bars

  • Kitchen Queen

    first time here, deliicous looking bars.

  • Sanjeeta kk

    What a lovely way to indulge in some fruits and veggies…love that stack of bars!

  • Revati

    Im sure it tastes as gorgeous as it looks! I absolutely love dried figs and was waiting for the post since you posted the sneak peek on FB 😛 I am going to give this one a try. I havent baked anything in ages for the same reason — just no enthusiasm and energy for elaborate kitchen activities.. But maybe this is a good one to break the lethargy!

  • Charul @ Tadka Masala

    I am totally making these with some almond in it. That would be yumm. Another thing, I just love the color. 🙂

  • Hari Chandana

    Sounds absolutely interesting and healthy.. Yummy !!
