Fig Oat Treats

8 figs
about 1/2 cup oats
cinnamon (of course!)
drizzle of honey
handful of almonds

Yes I know, this is probably one of the least specific recipes I have made but honestly, I threw all this in a blender...having to scrape down the sides a couple times...then rolled them into bite sized balls to have as treats!  Threw them in the freezer so that I do not eat them all!

Enjoy!!
