Author Notes: I picked up a pound of beautiful figs at the farmers market on Sunday and have been dreaming of all the lovelies I could make with them. My boyfriend and I had a hankering for cookies, so I two kinds. "His" cookies involved butter, "Hers" did not. These are simple, satisfying, and celebrate the season for figs! Happyolks

Makes 1 dozen

  • 2/3 cup Real Maple Syrup or Brown Rice Syrup
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Kamut Flour (or any other gluten free flour of choice)
  • 1 cup Rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup Chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 splash Almond Milk
  • 6 Raw figs, halved
  1. Mix olive oil, syrup, and vanilla together in a large bowl
  2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, spices, seeds, and salt.
  3. Slowly combine dry ingredients to wet ingredients, the mixture will be on the drier side. Add just a little almond milk.
  4. Let mixture set for 10-15 min while you preheat the oven to 350 and cut the fresh figs in half.
  5. Roll out dough into 12 medium sized balls and press gently to flatten a bit. Set figs atop the cookie platform, sprinkle with a little cinnamon-sugar and bake for 12-14 minutes.
  6. Enjoy and be grateful for this beautiful life!

Yum - my mother in law has three giant strawberry fig trees and they are producing like mad, I wonder if there are any left ... we picked last week (brandied fig sauce anyone?). These sound great and also a healthier option to, say, fudge :-)

You could go crazy and drizzle some fudge on top? Hmm, we might be on to something here :) :)

These look so good but . . . an entire teaspoon of nutmeg? Is that right? Thanks. ;o)

honestly, I just use a nutmeg grinder and give it at least 6 or 7 good cranks. You could easily call it 3/4 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, or omit it entirely. I'm a spice girl, but use your intuition!
