Making Oven Roasted Figs couldn’t be easier! Put the figs in oven and forget them there for 40 min! Cinnamon, rosemary and honey make a super delicious combination together with baked figs. Serve them as a healthy snack or dessert.
Looking for easy yet impressive fig recipes? Here is a ridiculously easy way to celebrate fresh fig season. Although they are wonderful as they are, I love to experiment on new recipes based on figs as in my recipe for Honeyed Figs with Cheese or Chocolate Covered Figs recipe. This time, I wanted to keep things simple and ended up with these Oven Roasted Figs which combine the flavors of cinnamon, rosemary and honey. Obviously, these will be one of the best fig recipes you have ever had.
How to make these oven roasted figs
This is one of those easy oven recipes. Just combine everything in a baking dish, put in a preheated oven and forget about it for 40 minutes. The sweetness of figs gets better when roasted, so this recipe gives you the feeling of a jam. If you like fig jam or any other jam, but don’t want to waste time making a full pot of it, make these oven roasted figs. They release their juice as they cook for about 30 minutes, you can just stop at this point and remove the figs from oven and enjoy the easiest fig jam ever. I wanted to serve my figs as a dessert, so roasted them for an extra 10 minutes so that there would be almost no juice left and they would have a nice a little wrinkled texture.
Oven roasted figs might look simple, but they shouldn’t be underestimated. Trust me these are bursting with flavors! This is a satisfaction-guaranteed fig dessert recipe. Figs are not too soft, you can still pick them with your hands. Brown sugar on each of fig slice adds a little more sweetness and a slight caramelization. Don’t overuse the sugar though because I recommend you to drizzle honey on each after they are done.
The cinnamon and rosemary complement the sweetness of these roasted figs, so don’t leave them out.
You can serve these oven roasted figs just as they are or with a little cheese or cream on top of each. These can be preserved in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a later use. You can top your breakfast yogurt or your favorite cake with them. You can even use these yummy figs in sandwiches.
