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. 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.

      1. Thank you. I appreciate your response. Love your recipes and your meal plans. They are making a world of difference for me.

    1. 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.

  3. 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!

  5. 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!

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

  7. 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!!

    1. Obviously figs were in season when Gina initially posted this recipe. Your rather snarky comment wasn’t necessary. 

      1. Your right it definitely wasn’t necessary!!  I love your recipes! Keep them coming! 

  8. 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!

    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!
