For Streusel Topping & Caramelized Pears:

  • 1/4 cup vegan buttery spread, softened (sub butter)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon water

  3. In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together nut milk, fig spread, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients, and mix well.
  5. Grease a 9x9 baking pan, and pour fig and oat mixture into the pan. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. While the oats are baking, make streusel topping. Combine coconut sugar, flour, buttery spread, cinnamon and water in a bowl until crumbly. 
  7. After the oats have baked for 20 minutes, take the pan out and top with streusel topping. Put back in the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
  8. While the oats are baking, heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add in  your coconut oil. Once hot, add pears to the skillet and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes.
  9. When the fig oatmeal bake is finished cooking, let it cool for 10 minutes. Then top it with caramelized pears, additional figs and eat up!
