Michelle and I have been planning this socca Sunday meal for a few days now! I am so excited to finally share it with you all :) We slept in this morning, so it was more of a brunch!

Last time I was in Charlotte I stopped by a health food store to grab some of Justin’s almond butter that we have seen many bloggers love. Luckily, for me the store offered samples of it! We were both eager to give this almond butter a try and we thought it would taste great with our socca.

Michelle and I were discussing our plans of our next socca Sunday… yes we plan these out, and thought figs would taste great with the almond butter socca idea we were already planning. We were going with a upgraded version of the classic PB & J!

Today’s Sunday Brunch – for our socca Sunday!

Pure2Raw’s Almond Butter Fig Socca

The main ingredients

and fresh figs (love fig season)

And of course socca!!

Today’s socca I did:

  • 1 cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (for the pan)

In a large bowl I put the garbanzo bean flour, water, salt, cinnamon and whisked together.

I put the 3 tbsp coconut oil in my 10 inch pan into a pre-heated oven of 400 degrees. Let the oil get hot for 4 minutes. Next I poured the cinnamon socca batter into the pan and baked for 40 minutes.

I topped the socca with the almond butter and fresh figs..no need for jelly when you have sweet fresh figs to use instead ; )

Michelle and I really enjoyed the combination of the almond butter and the sweet figs with the garbanzo bean socca! YUMMMMMM A little savory….with a little sweetness!

Till next time,

I haven’t tried Justin’s yet. Looks good! We love socca here too! I make it into waffles too! I love that it can go savory or sweet. The figs look beautiful too! Enjoy your day ladies!

Oh my does that ever look delish. Actually salivating :)
I think it might be hard to find the garbanzo bean flour.

Tamikko – most health foods stores sell garbanzo bean flour, in addition you can get it off Amazon.

Girls, that post made me drool! I love figs & never know how to use them in recipes, but now I think I have a new one to try ;) . I love reading your blog & loved your recent post about not labeling yourselves. Keep up the great work!

Crystal- thank you! We use fresh figs a lot in things…we also shared a grape fig smoothie you might like too, http://www.pure2raw.com/2010/08/how-we-make-a-green-smoothie/

Oh, that sounds wonderful! Mediterranean again! Figs and almonds go so well together and I may just have to try socca out on my family.

love

What a great breakfast idea! I just recently had some fresh figs for the first time, but they were not very sweet or flavourful. I sometimes make a breakfast quesadilla with an ezekiel wrap, almond butter, and sliced strawberries, quickly pan-toasted on each side for a crunchy exterior. Sooo yummy. Now you have me craving socca :)

Pure2 August 29, 2010 at 1:47 pm

Tweal – sorry to hear your figs were not sweet….they have a short season and if they are not ripe they have more a bland flavor. But you breakfast wrap sounds great!

It’s beautiful! Wow! Nice work ladies! I haven’t tried Justin’s yet either. Keep seeing the to-go packs. I should try some. :)

Wow…that really looks good. Where do you get the garbanzo flour…do you make it yourself? (running to sprout garbanzo beans now!)a

Reply

Pure2 August 29, 2010 at 6:49 pm

Susan – no we do not make our flour, but maybe we will start. You can garbanzo flour at most health food stores.

yum. figs are the coolest!! I saw them being displayed at WF today. They bring back memories of fig newtons… fond memories, though I cannot say I would be willing to eat one of those these day.

I just read this post and had to try it. No socca available but used your raw crackers as a base – so delicious! i love fig season. thanks for the yummy combo!!

Pure2 August 30, 2010 at 1:56 pm

Carrie that is awesome! I think using our crackers is a perfect substitute, yum, making me hungry just thinking about it :)

Thanks for another beautiful, creative, and delicious recipe! It made a great brunch yesterday :) I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup since I did not have the exact almond butter and my socca was plain.
