Paleo Fig Squares


The childhood favorite just got real. These fig squares are gluten free, low in sugar, and contain ingredients you (and your body) can read and understand! 

Paleo Fig Squares


  • 1 cup dried white turkish figs, stem end removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt 


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 tapioca starch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Dash of sea salt 
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon coconut nectar
  • 2 tablespoon ghee, melted (or use melted coconut oil)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Place dried figs in a small bowl and cover with warm water. Soak 10 minutes until soft.

In a large bowl, add almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca starch, cinnamon, and sea salt. 

Make filling: place figs in a food processor to roughly chop. Add cinnamon, vanilla, and sea salt and process until "dough" forms a sticky ball. 

In a medium bowl, add egg, coconut nectar, and ghee. Incorporate into dry ingredients and blend until batter is formed. 

Divide dough in half and form two small balls. Grease a sheet of parchment paper and lay flat. Place one ball of dough in center and fold parchment paper in half. Using a rolling pin, flatten until about 1/4 inch thick. Gently place filling on top and spread evenly. Do the same with the second half of dough and place on top, folding up edges to seal. Using a large knife or pizza cutter, cut into "logs" and then squares of desired size. 

Place squares on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and cook 17-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
