These were delicious and easy to make! The whole family enjoyed them. I did have to bake them about 10 minutes longer than the recipe stated.

Very bizarre bars, there is no leavening agent so they don't rise at all and no fat good or otherwise. Just chewy squares...won't make again

These are pretty good, and a nice change of pace from the usual chocolate chip and oatmeal fare. I did not find that rolling them in confectioner's sugar did anything for the flavor, so I didn't do that after the first one. Very easy and quick to make, also. Thanks!

This recipie gives you everything you want when you crave something sweet. Chewy, cruchy, sweet, nutty. I love it. And it is very good for you too.

Really great recipe. I used pecans instead of walnuts, and melted chocolate on top for a little something something. Very easy, very yummy snack.

Tasty, but next time I'll omit the ground clove and use more cinnamon. I don't care for clove and so to me it overpowers the fig (and cinnamon). This baked for 30 mins.

These bars are delicious. I didn't change a thing and the whole family loves them. Fairly light texture considering that they are chewy and crunchy, too. The spices were just perfect.

Very Yummy. Healthy, and sweet. It could have used a little less fig and a little more crust, but all together pretty good.
