For the granola:
For the baked figs:
For the honey-yogurt:
  • 3cups yogurtplain thick (Greek style)
  • 2 to 3tbsps honey
  1. Start with making the granola. You can do this ahead and store it till you need it.
  2. Put the egg white and vanilla extract in a medium sized bowl. Whisk together until the egg becomes foamy. Fold the oats and sliced almonds into the egg white. Then sprinkle the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt over this, and fold in till mixed. Lastly fold in the honey.
  3. Spread the granola mixture evenly into a thin layer on a greased foil lined baking tray. Bake it at 150C (300F) for about 25 minutes, stirring it once in between baking. Take the granola out when done, and let it cool for about 5 minutes in the tray. Then loosen it and let it cool completely. Store till required.
  4. Bake the figs next. To do this, combine the honey, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Pour this over the figs and lightly stir so the figs are coated properly. Place the figs cut sides face up, in a single layer on a baking tray. Bake them at 180C (350F) for about 10 minutes or till the fig juice starts to bubble. Take the tray out of the oven and let the figs cool down completely. At this point you can refrigerate the figs as they are for a day. Cover the baking tray with cling wrap before refrigerating.
  5. To serve, combine the yogurt with the honey and spoon half a cup of this into each serving bowl. Divide the granola equally between the serving bowls, sprinkling it over the yogurt. Divide the figs between the bowls arranging it over the granola and serve.
