Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Toast walnuts in a skillet until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Chop coarsely.

  • Stir rye flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl. Mix walnuts, oats, figs, and chocolate chips in a separate bowl.

  • Beat butter in a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Add brown sugar; beat to incorporate. Add egg and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth. Add flour and oat mixtures to the bowl. Mix on low speed until thoroughly incorporated.

  • Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and arrange on the baking sheet about 2 1/2 inches apart. Press down with the back of a large spoon to flatten cookies.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set, about 16 minutes. Remove from baking sheets and cool on a rack.
