Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
  • 20 dried Mission figs (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla plant milk

Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a food processor, pulse 1 cup of Quaker oats until a flour-like consistency. Remove from food processor and set aside.
  3. Place dried figs in a small pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 3 minutes. Drain figs (reserve some liquid). In the empty food processor, puree figs and 4 tablespoons of simmering liquid until smooth. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together oat flour, remaining oats, flaxseeds, baking soda and salt. Add in oil, honey and plant milk. Stir until combined.
  5. Coat 8x8 pan with cooking spray. Press 1 cup of oat mixture into bottom of pan, spread on fig puree, and crumble on remaining oat mixture (will not cover top entirely).
