Caramelized Figs with Yoghurt and Granola 

My uncle has a green fig tree in his backyard. Every summer, he would give us a generous portion of his harvest. We like to eat them fresh, but I also like making them into desserts. This recipe is fairly simple and is a good way to use up figs that are starting to get too ripe.  You can serve them with yoghurt and honey like I did or eat them with ice cream, even in a salad ! I made some granola the other day, so I added them for extra crunchiness. 

Makes about 4-6 servings

  • 6 fresh figs
  • 15 g unsalted butter 
  • 30 g demerara or brown sugar 
  • 300 g plain Greek yoghurt 
  • 60 mL honey 
  • 1 cup homemade granola 
  1. Cut figs in halves, coat with brown sugar 
  2. Melt butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat 
  3. Add figs, cut sides down
  4. Cook for about 3-4 minutes (be careful not to burn the sugar)
  5. Flip figs over, remove from heat 
  6. Serve warm with yoghurt, honey and granola

    This is such a perfect way to set off the goodness of figs. I’ve got a fig tree in my backyard, but it’s only four years old and has produced exactly one fig so far. There are more on the way and I’m crossing my fingers that they’ll ripen before fall. If they do, I think I’ll use some in your recipe.

      Thanks Teresa! One of my friends has a veggie garden and she said her harvest is not too good this year too, maybe because the first half of our summer hasn’t been hot enough? Hope you will get more figs! 😊

        I think it was the “June-uary” weather we got that put them so behind (though I’ve still got lots of lettuce, beans, and other early summer treats, so there’s that).
