Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a mixer, mix together the butter and sugars until fluffy.
Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined well.
In another bowl, add the flour, soda, powder, salt and nutmeg and stir well. Add in batches to the butter mixture, mixing well after each addition.
Fold in the oats, figs and walnuts until evenly distributed.
Scoop 2 Tbsp of dough onto the parchment paper, making sure to keep at least 3 inches between scoops.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until done. Cookie may not look all the way done in the middle but it will continue to cook for a few minutes after removed. Allow to cool on the pan for a few minutes and then transfer cookies to a cooling rack.
