Sun Baked Energy Squares
(adapted for the Sun Oven from WW Veg Power!)
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
1/2 cup dried figs, chopped
1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped
2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
2 tablespoons dried cherries
2 tablespoons dried papaya, chopped
2 tablespoons mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Line a 4 x 8-inch loaf pan with tin foil extending over the rim. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, combine the almond milk and flaxseeds. Let soak for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix together the figs, almonds, coconut flakes, dried cherries, dried papaya, chocolate chips, flour, maple syrup, baking powder, cinnamon, and cardamom. Add almond milk and flaxseed mixture. Stir until moistened. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Cover with a dark kitchen towel and bake until firm to the touch, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Use tin foil to lift from the pan. Cut into 8 squares. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
