Fig and Hazelnut ‘Blondies’

Here’s another variation on Mandy’s original ‘Blondies’ recipe.  They are two for 1sp on No Count and if following WW Flex, they are 1sp each or 2 for 3sp. A fab snack or great as a dessert with fruit and natural yogurt.


Ingredients (makes 10):

  • 50g ready oats (eg: Asda Ready Oats/Ready Brek)
  • 10g self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup (or other sugar-free syrup)
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 50g low fat natural yoghurt (use fat free on WW Flex)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 20g chopped hazelnuts (2g per person is free)
  • 4 fresh figs, peeled and chopped into small pieces


  1. Mash the bananas and beat well with the egg yolks, sugar-free syrup, vanilla extract and yoghurt.
  2. Lightly whisk the egg white and fold in.
  3. Add the oats, flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt and mix well.
  4. Stir in the hazelnuts and figs.
  5. Pour into a greaseproof papered brownie tin.
  6. Bake on 180C for 15 – 20 mins.
  7. Allow to cool in the brownie tin and cut into portions.


Serving suggestion:


This dessert uses two of the ‘blondies’, making it 1sp on No Count or 3sp if following WW Flex: Total 0% Greek yogurt with a squirt of sugar-free maple syrup and strawberries complement the ‘blondies’ perfectly.

  1. Hi Helen, have been making the Raspberry and white Chocolate Blondies 4 times. Have replaced Raspberries with Blueberries, Strawberries and Blackberries and added some bits of walnuts to it as well All of them a great success. We love it. I cut them in 5cm squares, wrap each of them in glad-wrap and put them in a zip-lock bag and in the freezer. We have one every morning with our coffee. Will make the Almond, the Rocky Road, and the Hazelnut Blondie today. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely recipes. xxx

    1. Hi and thank you, 🤗 it’s great to hear how much you’re enjoying the blondies and brownies, and trying different variations. 😋💕 I’ve yet to try blueberry ones but they’re on the list. 👌🏻 It’s a good idea to freeze them too so you always have one ready. I hope you enjoy the recipes you’ve yet to try and I hope you have a fab weekend too 💕 Helen xxxxxxxx
