Since figs hold moisture in baked goods, you may use half the amount of fig puree as you would use butter or oil.
Figs contain a wealth of beneficial nutrients including vitamin A, B1, B2, calcium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, sodium, potassium and chlorine.
3 large fresh figs contain just about 140 calories and 5.5gms of dietary fiber. That's more fiber than a cup of cooked oatmeal or a slice of double fiber wheat bread.
Not only are they rich in fiber, they're also a great source of calcium as half a cup of milk.
