Makes 16


Oven 180c


  • 280g dried figs


  • 240ml water


  • Pinch salt


  • 1tbsp orange zest


  • 3tbsp maple


  • Base – 1tbsp ground flaxseed


  • 2.5tbsp water


  • 160g oat flour (I simply blitz oats)


  • 100g oats


  • 1/2tsp baking powder


  • Pinch salt


  • 4tbsp maple


  • 80ml coconut oil, melted


  • 1tsp vanilla


  1. Cut the stems off the figs and put in a pot with a pinch salt, orange zest, 240ml water and simmer for 30minutes.
  2. Set aside to cool slightly then place in blender with the maple syrup and blend into a paste.
  3. Make a vegan egg by combining the flaxseed and 2/5tbsp water, mix and set aside for 5mins.
  4. Combine the oat flour, oats, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
  5. Next, combine the maple syrup, egg, vanilla and coconut oil together, fold in the dry ingredient and stir until combined.
  6. Press half the batter mix into a lined brownie tin (it is sticky so press it down with the back of a wet spoon) Next press the fix mix on top. Lastly drop bits of the remaining batter over the fig layer to make a crumble. Press down gently.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 25minutes, until the edges are golden brown. Leave aside to cool on a wire rack before cutting.
