Place the figs in a bowl and cover with water and soak for about an hour until soft. Drain reserving liquid.
In a blender, blend the figs and vanilla until smooth, slowly adding soaking water as needed to form a creamy consistency.
Transfer the fig mixture into a large bowl, add the nut butter and stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, mix the Cacao Powder, mesquite powder and Hemp Seeds.
Gradually add the dry Cacao mixture into the wet fig mixture. Stir well.
