Fresh figs are exotic and add a delicate earthy flavour to foods. Although I love berries in my oats, the fresh figs add something special that will warm your soul. In this simple gluten free overnight oats recipe, the figs are caramelized in a tasty syrup that is flavoured with a hint of cinnamon, maple syrup, and lemon zest. Did you know that half a cup of fresh figs provides the same amount of calcium as half a cup of milk? But there is more, for instance, figs are an excellent source of several essential minerals, vitamins, and fiber. More on why fresh figs are so good for us by Dr. Mercola.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups certified GF rolled oats
  • 2 tsp. GF chia seeds
  • 2 ¼ cups milk or alt-milk (coconut, almond, rice or hemp)
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 12 fresh figs, quartered
  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. GF ground cinnamon
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Instructions

  • In a medium size glass bowl combine oats, chia seeds, milk and maple syrup. Cover and refrigerate overnight
  • Preheat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add butter, maple syrup, cinnamon and lemon zest
  • Place figs in the pan, and cook for 2 minutes keep stirring to coat with the syrup
  • While the figs are still hot, add half the caramelized figs to oats and stir. Divide among 4 serving cups or bowls and spoon the remaining figs over top
