FIGS!!!

I loveee fresh figs. They have a mildly sweet taste with a subtle hint of berry. You can’t go wrong eating a fresh fig solely on it’s own. The sad part is I can only find them in select stores a few times during the summer. They first usually appear in northeast produce markets in late June with a season that lasts through early fall.

This weekend I went to the Farmers Market to very sadly find out it was closed due to another event. To cheer myself up I drove to the produce market hoping they would have either persimmons, kumquats or fresh figs. And as you can see, figs they had!

This recipe is yet again my favorite – Yummy enough for dessert yet healthy enough for breakfast.

The base is a zucchini breakfast cookie, topped with PB2, fresh figs, strawberry, banana & fresh basil.

I ate mine for lunch along with a medium sized bowl of sauteed veggies & Italian seitan sprinkled with nutritional yeast. What topping will you add to your flatbread?!
