Baked Fresh ‘Fig’, Honey, Walnuts and Cinnamon!
– 40 g walnuts, 1 walnut placed on top of each fig
– 8 fresh whole figs, cut into halves
– 1 tablespoon honey, drizzled over all the figs
– 1 fine sprinkle of ground cinnamon, sprinkled over all the figs
Preheat the oven to 150°C, fan forced.
Line a baking tray with some aluminium foil.
Place all the figs, skin side down, evenly over the aluminium foil. Drizzle all the fig halves evenly with honey, then sprinkle ground cinnamon evenly onto every fig half. Place 1 walnut onto the middle of each fig half.
Once the oven has preheated for approximately 10 minutes, place the fig halves into the oven, then cook until the fig halves are slightly caramelised and until the walnuts are roasted. This should take approximately 10 minutes, according to the oven used.
Compiling the Beauty:
Place 4 fig halves into your favourite bowl.
If you like, first spoon some low fat and low sugar yogurt into the middle of the bowl, then delicately place the beautiful baked figs on top. If you like, spoon a little of the flavourful natural syrup over the figs and the yogurt. Pure bliss and simplicity!
Tip: use the juices coming out from the cooked figs, as a natural syrup to add on top of your fresh fruit salad. You may also choose to add this natural syrup to some chilled water, for a different drink.
Easy peasy 🙂
Serves 4 as a light dessert!
