Ingredients:

Oat Mixture:

Liquid Mixture:

  • 2 ¼ cups unsweetened cashew milk (or nut/seed milk of your choice)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Bottom Layer:

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Grease an 8-inch baking dish with coconut oil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the old fashioned rolled oats, granola, baking powder, cardamom and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cashew milk, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla.
  4. To assemble, scatter the pears on the bottom of the pan, then scatter the chopped chocolate on top of the pears. Sprinkle over the oat mixture and pour over the liquid mixture. Give the pan a good couple of whacks on the counter to ensure the liquid reaches the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup Coconut Chia Granola and a few shavings of dark chocolate, if desired.
  5. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes, until golden and set. Let cool for 5 – 10 minutes before serving. Serve with coconut whipped cream, plant-based yogurt or more cashew milk.
