Figs, rich in antioxidants, are combined with fiber-filled oats, whole-grain flour, and honey to make a snack that is healthier than a standard cookie or energy bar. I think they are quite delicious! The recipe is adapted from one published in "Delicious Living", a magazine provided complimentary by our local health food store; it was included in a feature on reducing sugar cravings and making healthier substitutions. Be sure to use whole-wheat pastry flour--you won't get the same results with regular whole-wheat flour.
