These 3-Ingredient Vegan Fresh Fig Cookies are really simple to make, they contain no flour, no eggs, and are sweetened with just figs, take a few mins to make, and most importantly taste delicious. They will curb pangs for something sweet to snack on. If you want a healthy breakfast full of good stuff and low in sugar, try this healthy treat recipe.
As whole fruit is used it contains sugar but as it’s not refined it retains all the fiber and is absorbed slowly into the bloodstream. I often have these breakfast cookies on the go thinking they are something indulgent but actually, they are one of the healthiest breakfasts you could have.
The fig situation is a bit complicated with vegans, some eat them others don’t. I for one, do eat them, and I don’t really see a reason not to.
All you need is 3-ingredients!

- 6 fresh figs about 2 1/4 cups / 400g total

- 1/2 cup/55g of walnuts ( use pumpkin seeds to make this recipe nut-free )
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon optional

- Peel the figs and mash them.
- Chop the walnuts finely then add them to your mashed figs. Finally, fold in the oats.
- Shape the dough into cookies ( the dough might be a bit wet) and place them onto a lined baking tray with parchment paper.
