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

- In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, spices, seeds, and salt.
- Slowly combine dry ingredients to wet ingredients, the mixture will be on the drier side. Add just a little almond milk.
- Let mixture set for 10-15 min while you preheat the oven to 350 and cut the fresh figs in half.
- 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.
