Fig + Pecan Cookies

Updated: Dec 18, 2018

I have always heard of "figgy" pudding in holiday stories and fig bars, but have never experienced figs myself, let alone cooked with them. So I decided this holiday season I would experiment with them while they are in season of course and bring you all something yummy! This recipe turned out so good and now I am a fig fan for sure :)


2 cups almond flour

4 tsp coconut flour

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 cup chopped figs ( about 2 whole figs)

1/2 cup chopped pecan

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp pink Himalayan salt

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup maple syrup

4 tbsp butter

1/3 cup coconut oil


Preheat oven to 350

Makes a dozen bigger cookies, 18 smaller ones

1: Place all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl ( figs are not a dry ingredient and they are not a wet one either, so just wait to put those and the pecans in until later)

2: Now mix all the wet ingredients into a medium size bowl

3: Chop up the figs into bite size pieces. Skin and all, all you need to do is twist the stem off. Then I cut it into slices and then diced the slices. They are really pretty and have a completely different taste when baked as appose to raw! It is crazy nuts :)

4: Next chop up the raw pecans (1/2 cup)

5: Add your wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl and mix thoroughly. Then fold in the figs and pecans

6: Place sized cookie on the parchment paper lined cooking sheet or Silpat

7: Once you put the cookies into the oven and they have been baking for 5 minutes, take a spoon and push down on the tops to flatten the cookies to your liking, they will not expand like some cookies do

8: Bake for 8-10 minutes, in our oven they are great by 8 minutes, any longer and they get too over cooked, but each oven can be different, so keep an eye out for the browning of the top and edges

9: Let the cookies cool on the sheet for 10 mintues before moving to cooling sheet

ENJOY! Let me know how much you enjoyed the figs by #honestgrubhonestfoodie and tagging @honestfoodie_blog on Instagram!
