Pear Cake

This cake makes a great dessert of course, but we also love it for breakfast or a snack. It's oil free and sugar free, using only 2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup and some Stevia to sweeten.

Pear Cake

Dry ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flour ( 1 cup rolled oats in a blender on high for 5-10 seconds)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Wet ingredients

  • ½ cup almonds
  • 12 dates, pitted
  • ½ cup filtered water
  • 2 cups pears
  • 2 cups pears, chopped, held out to fold in after all ingredients are mixed together.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together: oat flour, rolled oats, raisins, baking powder, ground flax and cinnamon. Set aside.

In a blender, add almonds, dates, filtered water, pears (just 2 cups, leaving 2 cups chopped to fold in after blending) and process on high speed until smooth - 45 to 60 seconds.

Pour the liquid ingredients into the oat flour bowl and mix well until there are no lumps.

Fold in the chopped pears.

Pour into an 8” x 8” baking dish and bake at 350º F for 45 minutes, until it’s nicely browned and a toothpick comes out clean.

This can also be baked in a Bundt pan, a round cake pan or 2 small loaf pans to create a different look... but it’s just as delicious whatever shape it takes!
