Fig Almond Overnight Oats

1- Fig Almond Overnight OatsPin


Just looking at the picture, I wish I was having that oats right away… hehe… My newly find love is dried figs. I used to never like figs before, despite knowing that they are one of the food mentioned exclusively in the Holy Quran. Once on a purchase spree, I bought some dried figs and tried them and then there was no looking back. This is now there on my grocery list as a regular purchase. Try substituting your biscuit and chai with two to three figs along with a few almonds as a mid-morning snack, and nothing like it, I tell you! It is so filling and really nutricious in its own way. Regular visitors of the blog may remember this delicious Anjeer Kheer that Farrukh had bought along during her guest post. This is hopefully a start to using figs more in my cooking. Before I move on with the recipe for the day, a little slide I would like to place here as reminder for myself and for all of you… πŸ™‚
