I always need something sweet after dinner. I usually reach for a piece of dark chocolate, but sometimes I crave something light and fruity. This dish is the perfect light dessert and such an amazing summertime treat. Figs are sweet on their own, but once you bake them they become even sweeter! The drizzle of maple syrup, sprinkle of cinnamon and coconut flakes are the perfect finishing touch!
Aside from being a wonderful healthy dessert, these figs also make the perfect appetizer or side dish. They are such a crowd-pleaser!
Figs contain so many beneficial nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, calcium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, sodium, potassium and chlorine.
