Overnight oats are so simple to make, I just soak the oats a few hours or overnight in any kind of milk along with chia seeds, then top them with honey and figs. No cooking required!

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. 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!

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

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

  3. 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!

      1. 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.

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

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

  7. 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) šŸ™‚

    1. I’ve never had a fig either:) You’re not alone. I’ll pick some up next time I’m in Whole Foods.
