Are you getting enough fiber? You will if you make these super high fiber, soft and delicious oatmeal fig bars. I make the crust/topping with oats, whole wheat pastry flour, and vegetable oil (cold pressed avocado oil is my preference). The filling is simply cooked figs with a little added sugar. I have these healthy fig bars for dessert after dinner and after breakfast too. I love them.
The desserts I make the most are always the ones without butter, with whole grains, and with some added health benefits like fruit or chocolate. And these fit the bill.
Figs are loaded with fiber but that’s not all. They also provide a wide range of vitamins and minerals. If you like fig newtons, these easy homemade bars will taste even better. Doesn’t everything homemade taste better? Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones
