Pear & Cranberry Loaf

Ingredients

2/3 cup rolled oats
1 cup milk (“Mom” prefers organic)
1 cup self-rising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup fresh or dried cranberries
1 cup fresh or dried pears, diced
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Put oats and milk in a bowl. If you’re using dried pears, put them in the bowl to soak and plump up before baking.
3. Stir remaining ingredients into the soaked oat mixture. Mix together well and spoon the mixture into a WearEver Pure Living Loaf Pan.
4. Bake for 45 minutes, until the top is golden and toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
