See recipe card for quantities.
Start by combining non dairy milk and flax seed, set aside to allow to thicken. While that thickens combine oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the milk mixture and pour into the bowl with oats. Stir to fully combine and fold in chopped peas. Transfer to a baking dish and bake for roughly 30 minutes until baked through and lightly browned around the edges.
- Pears - any type of pear can be used
- Oats - be sure to use certified gluten free oats if needed
- Flax seeds - chia seeds can be used instead of flax
- Fruit - apples can be used instead of pears
- Dessert - make this a healthy dessert by topping with your favorite non dairy ice cream
- Toppings - use pecans, walnuts, etc. for a delicious crunch and a drizzle of real maple syrup
I used a glass baking dish which takes longer to heat and retains heat for longer. If you use a metal pan your baking time may be a little shorter.
Leftovers can be stored in an air tight container in the fridge and reheated in the microwave when needed. You can also freeze cut portions in a container or bag for longer storage and microwave later.

Hi Rebecca. So sorry for the late reply. A google search shows 1 cup of oats is 80 grams and 1/3 cup of sugar is 67 grams. I hope this helps!
