  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup fig jam (make from recipe or use store-bought)
  • fresh figs, sliced for garnish on top (optional)

Make the fig jam first or even a day or two ahead of time. If you don't want to make your own fig jam, you can always use store-bought. The fig jam takes about an hour and a half to make and cool so plan ahead. Preheat the oven to 350° and prepare a baking pan with parchment paper and non-stick spray. My pan is 8×10.
Add all ingredients except the fig jam and sliced figs into a mixing bowl and combine it into a crumble. I used a rubber spatula and then my hands to ensure everything was fully incorporated.
Take a little more than half of the crumble mixture and press it into the bottom of the prepared pan with your fingers. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and spread fig jam all over the top. Be careful, the pan is still hot!
Take the remaining crumble and put it on top of the fig jam. Gently press down on the top to get it even and lightly packed. Place the thinly sliced figs on top and then place the pan back into the oven for 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Cut into squares and enjoy!
  • You can substitute melted unsalted butter for coconut oil.
  • You can substitute coconut flour for all-purpose flour and make these gluten-free.
