Caramelized Figs

photo-592This is a simple way to make something that’s a bit sweet but a far cry from Paleo-ifying dessert. You could even skip the shaved dark chocolate if you wanted something Whole30-compliant.

Prep time: 5 min     Cook time: 5 min    Makes: 4 figs


  • 4 fresh, ripe figs (mission, black, brown turkey, etc.)
  • 1 spoonful of ghee or coconut oil
  • Cinnamon for sprinkling
  • Good quality dark chocolate for shaving on top, optional (I used 90% dark chocolate)


  1. Wash the figs. Cut the stem end off and then slice in half.
  2. In a skillet over medium-high heat, melt the ghee or coconut oil. When hot, cook the figs 1-2 minutes on each side or until they begin to caramelize. 
  3. Remove from the pan sprinkle with cinnamon and dark chocolate shavings.
