“These cookies really do brown quickly, so you need to watch them and your baking time may vary. Remember, they well continue to bake a bit after you take them from the oven. For a rather healthy cookie, they are quite delicate.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Lightly coat baking sheets with cooking spray or line with parchment or a silpat.
  3. With an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar until lightened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the syrup, egg and vanilla and continue to blend.
  4. Sprinkle with the flour, baking soda and salt and mix just until incorporated. Add the oats and figs and stir to incorporate.
  5. Drop the batter onto the baking sheets by the tablespoon, 2 inches apart (cookies really spread, so leave space).
  6. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden and bottoms have browned (they turn dark quickly, so keep an eye on them).
  7. Let cool on sheet until crisp enough to transfer.
