  • 1 pound dried figs, stems removed
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon non-diet tub-style margarine or butter, cut into small pieces


  1. Coat a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. Chop the figs and place in a food processor. Puree with on/off turns. Transfer to a medium saucepan.
  3. Add the water, honey and cinnamon. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes, or until the mixture thickens.
  4. Remove from the heat.

  6. Drizzle with the oil and dot with the margarine or butter. Mix well with on/off turns.

  8. Spoon dollops of the fig mixture evenly over the crust; use the back of a spoon to spread it out evenly.
  9. Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture evenly over the top and spread it out with the back of a spoon. Press it lightly into place.
  10. Bake at 400 degrees F for 22 to 26 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  11. Cut while still warm.
