Getting figgy with it! :)

on 24/08/2014

Because Summer is really over & the days are getting colder, I needed something warm for my breakfast! So, I made this lovely warm gluten-free vegan figgy oatmeal! Today, I had another 5 ripe figs from my own fig tree. So, I used them in this delicious no-guilt warm breakfast! πŸ˜‰

Getting Figgy With It! :)

Getting Figgy With It! πŸ™‚


Recipe: For 2 persons, with a lot of hunger


11 tablespoons of Gluten-free oats/ Use normal oats if not GF! /

5 ripe fresh figs, cleaned, stems cut off, each fig lengthways cut into 4

3 tablespoons of unsweetened white almond flour =Β This is white almonds processed in a food processor until it resembles a fine white powder aka flour

1 teaspoon + 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

500 mlΒ vanilla almond milk

1 tablespoon of coconut sugar, if you need to


1. Take a cooking pot & add your ingredients in it. Cook on medium-high heat until cooked through. Stir often but carefully do not try to break up the cut up figs. My Gluten-Free oats took me 10 minutes to cook. Taste. I added 1 tablespoon of coconut sugar to the mix. Stir. Taste again. It will be very delicious! Yummm,…!Β πŸ™‚Β

  19. Karen says:

    I would like to start my day with this figgy goodness.

  20. Sophie, where are you??! I know you’ve been cooking up something. Miss you friend.

    • Sophie33 says:

      I have had a lot of chronic pain for the moment & have a change in medication. I am getting used to it!

      So no cooking for the moment, only speedy easy suppers! xxx

      Thanks for caring though, dear Rhonda! xxx Hugs! πŸ˜‰

  21. Suzanne says:

    So nice that you have your own fig tree, and they would be perfect in oatmeal too. hugs Suzanne

  22. Sally says:

    I do envy your own figs from the tree. The best I ever tasted were plucked from a tree in Devon – the ones we get in the Middle East do not compare (bizarrely).
