A friend gave me some figs, so I thought this recipe would be a great way to make them. I didn't have the flax, so I added extra oatmeal. The first batch was bland and dense, so I added baking soda and walnuts to the second half. This improved the recipe, so I would recommend changing the recipe to 2 teaspoons baking soda and a teaspoon of salt, as well as a cup of chopped walnuts. Read More

They were good, but they were little denser than I thought. That is probably because I'm not used to cooking with oatmeal and flax seed powder. Read More

Great recipe for figs! I used whole wheat flour and added an extra teaspoon of baking soda with a pinch of salt. I doubled the spices for our personal preference and a stevia blend for the white sugar. Low fat and high fiber — perfect for breakfast with yogurt! Read More

This recipe is easy, very tasty. They stay moist stored in a food bag. The flavor is best after these are completely cooled. This is a favorite for me! Read More
