Fig Pecan Oatmeal Bread

This amazing Fig Pecan Oatmeal Bread is naturally sweetened, super moist, sweet and extremely addictive. Figs add just enough sweetness, but I like to give it extra flavor by adding a little of my favorite date sugarΒ from Bob’s Red Mill. The fudgy texture makes it a perfect treat when your sugar cravings are high, or an afternoon snack, along with a cup of coffee. It is made with grounded oatmeal, and buckwheat flour. However, you can replace buckwheat with any flour you like to make it gluten free. I topped the loaf with more figs and pecans for an extra crunch.
