This Fig Pistachio Oatmeal Brûlée transforms boring old oatmeal into a breakfast worthy of a dessert menu with rich flavors, crunchy textures & a crackly brûlée crust.




  • Gluten Free oats - 1 cup
  • water - 2 cups
  • salt - 1/2 teaspoon
  • cream of coconut - 1/2 cup


  • butter - 2 tablespoons
  • brown sugar - 1-2 tablespoons
  • cinnamon - 1 teaspoon
  • cardamom - 1/2 teaspoon
  • nutmeg - 1/4 teaspoon
  • figs - 4-6 quartered
  • maple syrup - 3-4 tablespoons
  • granulated sugar - 1/2 cup
  • pistachios - 1/3 cup (toasted)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spread the pistachios evenly on one baking sheet and the oats evenly on a separate baking sheet. Toast the oats for for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. During the final 8-10 minutes of baking, add the baking sheet with the pistachios and continue baking both until the oats start to brown slightly and there is a nutty aroma.
  3. Remove from oven and set aside. Once the pistachios have cooled, roughly chop them and reserve for later.
  4. Bring the water and oats to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the salt and cream of coconut. Cook over medium heat for 15-18 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom.
  7. Melt the butter over low heat in a sauté pan. When butter starts to brown, add the quartered figs and swirl them around in the butter. Sprinkle the spice mix over the figs and toss to coat evenly.
  8. Sauté for a few minutes until the juices begin to caramelize.
  9. Gently mix in the oats and stir in the maple syrup.
  10. Brûlée
  11. Divide the oatmeal between 4 (1 cup capacity) torch-safe ramekins.
  12. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar over each ramekin of oatmeal. Using a culinary torch, gently melt the sugar until a candied crunchy brûlée crust forms.
  13. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios and fresh figs.
  14. Enjoy in the comfort of your warm and cozy bed.


If you do not have a culinary touch readily available,broiling the oatmeal in the oven for 3-5 minutes will make for a crunchy brûlée just as well as the torch. Any combination of fruits & nuts can be substituted. I suspect a rum laced banana walnut version would be incredible.
