If you don’t have figs you can top with any fruit. Often I sweeten the oats with stevia, but today I opted for a little raw local honey.

It’s the start of fig season! Last week I attended an event for California Figs and brought home some beauties so I’ve been eating them all week. They are great as is, on toast with almond butter, but I also love them over a bowl of oats. This breakfast is healthy and full of fiber which will keep you full for hours.

  1. I love overnight oats! They are so easy and delicious. I had recently run out of honey, so I substituted pure maple syrup, which complemented the pecans quite nicely. I also heated up the oats in the microwave for about 45 seconds before topping with the figs, nuts, and maple syrup.

  2. Thank you for your recipes and menus!  I am loving them!

  3. Hi 🙂 what brand of quick oats do you use?

  4. Can I use rolled oats instead of quick oats?

  5. I would love to see more overnight oat recipes. My husband and I love the recipe with blueberries and bananas. I do not like figs, but I will be trying this recipe with another fruit.

  6. I love ypur recipes and use them every week! Thanks

  7. Has anyone tried this with Steel Cut Oats?

  8. Can you use steel cut oats instead of quick oats?

  9. If I use dried figs, would I soak them overnight in the oats and milk?

    • You can try it either way. Dice them first though, and they will soften quiet a bit if you soak them over night. If you like more texture just add them in the morning.

  10. How many Freestyle Smart Points is this OVERNIGHT OATS WITH FIGS AND HONEY recipe? I noticed some recipes on this site are not updated to with Freestyle points. Thanks!

  12. Hey Gina, where do you find fresh figs on LI? I’ve been looking the last 2 summers and can’t find them by me.  Thanks!

  13. Can we use dried figs for this recipe? I have some in my pantry and would love to be able to use them.

  14. I think my figs were the wrong side of ripe (a bit smooshy) but this came out well anyway! I subbed groats (hemp seeds) for pecans since I was out and also added a dash of cinnamon. I made a double batch and ooooh the flavor was light but lovely and I am SO FULL. I have been wanting to try overnight oats for months and was waiting for the right recipe. Thanks, Gina!!

  15. figs not in season yet in NY surprised you put out a recipe with them and fresh figs at it

  16. Wow this oatmeal looks so decadent but it's so healthy! Perfection 🙂

  17. I like my overnight oats without added sugar, so I mash a ripe banana into the oat mixture before refrigerating. I also use old fashioned oats. It's a great breakfast that keeps you full until lunch. I'm going to have to try it with figs now! Thanks for the recipe!

  18. Looks delicious, will have to pick up the ingredients to make this for breakfast next week!

  19. I've always wondered about overnight oats as so many people seem to keep mentioning it. Will have to give this recipe a go I think, especially with figs as they are oh-so very awesome!

  20. I LOVE fresh figs and overnight oats! This looks amazing, Gina!

  21. looks scrumptious!!!

  22. This looks super good! I haven't tried figs yet. Lately we have been using your recipe for overnight oats with Blueberry, Banana and adding 1/2 Tablespoon of PB2 mixed in….SO GOOD!

  23. Great post dear!

  24. I am not an oatmeal fan, but I love overnight steel cut oats. Thanks for the inspiration. JoAnn

  25. Can you tell us how to pick fresh figs? I only ever buy them dried.

    • They last 2 to 3 days, you want them to be soft — to give a little with the slightest pressure, but not at all mushy or hard.

  26. I usually don't eat oatmeal, but I do like overnight oatmeal. I make mine using fat free yogurt and add a little bit of cinnamon to it. I usually throw chopped apples, craisins and pumpkin seeds on it. I'm going to have to try figs and honey; that sounds amazing!

  27. Couldn't find fresh figs ANYWHERE so I used dried… more calories, but still tasty!

    • That works, or any fruit. Try peaches!

    • because it is NOT fig season yet

      • Why were you so determined to point that out multiple times? Who cares?! Use another fruit if they aren’t in season! Maybe they were when this was originally posted. Seriously unnecessary to be so rude as others pointed out to you.

  28. Looks so good! Have great day!

  29. You always have the BEST recipes. I just discovered figs a couple years ago and LOVE them! Especially in yogurt!

  30. It is extremely hard to get fresh figs in Colorado. I love them!

  31. I'm seeing figs everywhere and man do they look delicious!

  32. I so need to get some fresh figs in my life. Especially to o with an oats and honey combo – that's the best!

  33. How do you eat figs? Do you slice the whole thing, peel off the outside,etc ? And what do they taste like? Sorry, I've never had them. Unless fig newtons count, which I doubt! (blush) 🙂

  34. Va-va-voom! What a beautiful bowl! Bound to put a smile on your face first thing in the morning 😀 x

  35. This looks amazing and so easy to make! Can't wait to try it.

    Thanks for sharing:)
