chewy oatmeal fig bars


These tasty treats are perfect for brekkie and dessert.

If we had to make a list of the fanciest fruits around, figs would have to be right up there. With their silky purple skin and jammy texture, raw figs are truly a delight to eat. They also taste heavenly when dried, cooked and paired with scrummy spices like vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.

This chewy oatmeal fig bar recipe by Sally’s Baking Addiction is full of all that good stuff and more. Thanks to its sticky fig filling (which can also be consumed with cheese and bikkies), it’s basically a jazzed-up version of the classic breakfast bar. What's not to love? Mosey over to Sally's website for the full recipe.

To accompany you while you embark on your next culinary quest, we’ve cooked up some lovely kitchen merch, including three colourful tea towels and a flower-power apron. The designs are pulled straight from the pages of the frankie 2022 diary, which is full of vintage kitchen-inspired artwork by Pilgrim Hodgson. Find the lot over at the frankie shop.
