I like this thread already.

I got a great recipe from Global Cycling Network for fig bars. They didn't give quantities. They just showed how it's done. I've made them a few times, without measuring at all, just eyeballing. I don't remember at this point if I'm following the instructions. Maybe they had raisins instead of dates. Anyway, this is how I made them the last time:

Toss figs, dates, walnuts, and almonds in a food processor. Blend them. Grease a baking sheet with coconut oil. Roll out the mixture on a baking sheet. Form it into a rectangle. Chill it in the freezer for a while. Cut it with a knife into bar shapes. Toss them into sandwich bags.

It's good, honest food, and it's delicious. I swear, I love these as much as chocolate brownies.
