This Overnight Oats with Caramelized Fresh Figs is an exotic oat breakfast. Fresh figs add warm and 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 Caramelized Fresh Fig soat recipe, the figs are caramelized in a tasty maple syrup that is flavoured with a hint of cinnamon 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 example, figs are an excellent source of several essential minerals, vitamins, and fiber. If you like figs you may enjoy our Thanksgiving recipe, the Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Fresh Figs  or our popular appetizer the Stuffed Figs with Goat Cheese and Pecans, or my favourite the Walnut And Fig Healthy Energy Bar.
