  • 140g soft dried fig, roughly chopped



    Although not juicy, the fig is an incredibly luscious fruit, with a delicate aroma and sweet…

  • 75g coconut oil
  • 6 tbsp clear honey or agave syrup

    Agave syrup

    Agave syrup (also known as agave nectar) is a naturally occurring sweetener similar in…

  • 300g rolled oats (we used ½ jumbo oats and ½ porridge oats)
  • 50g dried cranberries, roughly chopped
  • 50g sultana, roughly chopped
  • 85g dried apricot, roughly chopped
  • 75g mixed nut, roughly chopped (we used Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, almonds and walnuts)


  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Line a 20cm square tin with baking parchment. Put the figs in a small pan with 150ml water and simmer until the liquid has reduced by half. Transfer to a food processor and whizz to a paste.

  2. Melt the coconut oil and syrup together over a low heat, then stir through the fig paste. Put the oats, dried fruit and nuts in a bowl and mix well, then pour over the wet mixture and stir until combined. Scrape into the tin and bake for 25-30 mins. Leave to cool before cutting into pieces.

These are only gluten free if you buy gluten free oats - normal oats are not gluten free.

Yummy. My 2yr old likes them too hurrah! Easy to make and hold together well. Nice chewy texture. I can see endless variations in ingredients you could use. Looking forward to trying them again with dates instead of figs and some different nuts. Might add some melted dark choc on top next time too!

Very nice! All members of my family love this recipe. I did however replace the figs with dates and added some seeds - truly scrumptious! And very easy - you don't need a food processor if you use dates, as they come out very soft after cooking.

I use 75g coconut oil when cold then melt it with the agave syrup and always work perfectly for me.
