In a food processor, add the ingredients for the crust and process into a flour-like consistency. Set aside in a bowl.
Rinse out the food processor and add the soaked figs and the vanilla powder. Process until the figs are broken down. Add 1 Tbsp of water, if needed. Then add 1/2 cup of the powder crust into the processor with the figs and pulse until well-combined. The texture should be soft, but don't over-process. Adjust the texture as needed with the powder crust and water.
Roll the fig mixture into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place balls into freezer while you clean the kitchen (about 10 minutes). Remove from the freezer and one by one roll the balls into the powder crust. Store in the fridge or freezer! Makes about 8-16 balls, depending on the size.
