Fig Cake (Raw Food)

I had found a large bag of organic dried figs and made this for my Mother In-Law as she likes them. If fig seeds annoy you (and I hate them!) this gets rid of that issue. It tastes like a “Fig Newton” just without the crust. Yum!

If your cake isn’t compacted enough and crumbles, don’t worry – you can sprinkle it on top of other items, it is delicious.

Fig Cake


  • ¾ cup dried Black Mission figs (as fresh as you can find)
  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • ¼ cup raw walnuts


Trim the ends of the figs and add them and the nuts to a food processor. Process until finely ground. I used 2 of my mini cake pans, as described here, and formed 2 “cakes”. Press down tightly so it gets compact. Store refrigerated.
