Ingredients

  • ¼ cup raw unsalted cashews (optional, see note)
  • 1-3/4 cups almond milk, divided
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 medium peaches, diced fine (see note)

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and grease and line an 8" x 8" oven-safe dish (or similar sized baking dish) with parchment paper liner.
  2. Add cashews to a medium pot and cover with water. Bring the cashews to a boil over a medium high heat. Boil for 5 minutes, taking care not to let the water level drop down below the cashews. Drain and rinse the cashews, and add to a blender with ¾ cup of almond milk. Blend for 3-5 minutes, until the cashews are completely creamy.
  3. Meanwhile, add flax seed with remaining 1 cup of almond milk to a bowl. Whisk together, then let sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Then, add the cashew cream to the flax seed mixture, along with the maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Whisk together until completely combined.
  5. To the wet ingredients add oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and diced peaches and mix until fully combined.
  6. Pour into prepared 8"x 8" dish and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the center is just barely firm.
  7. Scoop and serve warm as is or with almond milk, or cool and slice into 9 square portions.

Recipe Notes

  1. You can leave the skin on or off the peaches. You can also use frozen peaches. Either defrost, or bake from frozen, though you have to take on an extra 3-5 minutes for the bake time.
  2. Have a nut allergy? It's fine to leave out the cashew cream. If you don't have a problem with dairy, you can replace the cashew cream with heavy cream and almond milk with cow's milk. If you still need it to be dairy-free and nut-free, you can substitute the almond milk with oat or coconut milk, and increase it by 1/4 cup to replace the cashew cream, but do not it won't be as creamy.
