Start the New Year Off Right!

Start the New Year Off Right!

This makes a delicious breakfast…or you could omit the oats for a healthy dessert option! 




Cooked Figs with Greek Yogurt & Blood Orange Walnut Granola
Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4



  • 1 cup dried figs, covered with SOOC Fig Balsamic Vinegar
  • ½ t ground cinnamon
  • 2 T dark honey
  • 1½ T SOOC Blood Orange Olive Oil
  • 1 C walnuts, shelled and chopped
  • 1 C oats
  • Greek Yogurt



  1. Add Blood Orange Olive Oil to a sauté pan over medium heat. Once oil is heated, add walnuts and oats; roughly toss and toast until fragrant and golden. Sprinkle with cinnamon and toss to coat; let cool.
  2. Heat the figs, Fig Balsamic Vinegar, and honey in a small saucepan. Cook at a low simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to create a compote; allow to cool.
  3. Portion the Greek Yogurt into small bowls and spoon the fig compote over top. Garnish with toasted granola.




  • Depending on your preference, the walnuts can also be swapped for chopped almonds…or even omitted to suit nut allergies!
