Baked Breakfast Clafoutisadapted from Chocolate and Zucchini
2 3/4 cups steel cut oats, uncooked
3/4 cup dried dates, chopped
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/3 cup chopped hazelnuts
1/2 tsp salt
3 1/3 cup almond milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup maple syrup (could use 1/4 or 1/2 cup depending on sweetness desired)
1 cup blueberries
12 cherries (fresh or frozen, pitted)
Preheat your oven to 350degrees. Lightly oil an 13 by 9-inch baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, hemp seeds , hazelnuts and salt. Mix well. In a medium bowl, combine the milk, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla. Mix well. Add this to the dry ingredients, and mix until well blended.
Pour the mixture into the baking dish, and make sure the solids are more or less evenly spread out. Sprinkle the blueberries on top. Place the cherries evenly on top.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, until the center is set and firm to the touch. Let cool slightly : it should be eaten a bit warm but not scalding hot. Don likes his cold.
