Naturally sweetened, gluten-free, and dairy-free Fig Oatmeal Breakfast Bars. A delicious, easy, and healthy start to any day!
I love gorgeous fresh figs. And summer is the season for them. To highlight them in all of their beauty (and to give myself an easy breakfast/snack option before I start my full-time job this week), I made these Fig Oatmeal Breakfast Bars.
I got my fresh figs at Trader Joes, but during the summer, they can be found at many different stores. And if it isn’t fig season, fear not…the fruit on top can easily be swapped for any other kind of fruit and these bars are even totally delicious on their own! You can also change up the mix-ins if you have any other preferences, but I loved this combination.
Needless to say, I was so happy with the results! These bars were exactly what I had in mind for something that can be made in big batches, but easily stored or even frozen to keep on hand for awhile. You can take one to-go in the morning or have one as a little afternoon snack!
This recipe is totally gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free (only sweetened with maple) to ensure an energizing breakfast without any sugar crashes.
I added a little Pecan Apple Butter on top of these and it was REVOLUTIONARY! Feel free to drizzle with almond butter, honey, yogurt or any other topping that you like! These are easy and customizable 🙂
