Cook 40 min
Cool 20 min
150g rolled oats 60g almonds, halved 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp fine salt 240ml almond milk 60ml maple syrup 1 egg
1½ tsp vanilla extract 1 apple, peeled, cored and cubed
2 bananas, sliced

Heat the oven to 190C/375F/gas 5, and grease a cake tin or casserole dish.
In a bowl, combine the oats, almonds, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, combine the milk, maple syrup, egg, vanilla and chopped apple. Add the dry mix to the wet and thoroughly combine.
Put a layer of half the banana, then a layer of half the pear on the base of the tin or casserole dish, cover with half the oat mixture, then the remaining fruit and the rest of the oat mix. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until set and golden. Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then spoon out into bowls and serve immediately, with yoghurt if you like. Healthy Baking by Jourdan Bourke (Orion)
