In a large, dry skillet, toast rolled oats, sunflower seeds and almonds, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes or until golden and fragrant. Transfer to a medium heatproof bowl and let cool. Set 1/4 cup (60 mL) aside for topping; cover and store at room temperature.

Coarsely shred pear on the coarse side of a box grater. Stir pear, flax seeds, nutmeg or cinnamon, yogurt and maple syrup or honey into bowl with oat mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

To serve, stir 1 cup (250 mL) of the raspberries into yogurt mixture, mashing berries slightly as you stir. Spoon into bowls, sprinkle with reserved oat mixture and top with remaining raspberries.


Use a mixture of rolled oats, quinoa flakes and/or barley flakes for a change in texture and flavour – just keep the total amount at 1 cup (250 mL).

Use a pear that’s ripe and sweet but still firm enough to shred. Pears ripen from the inside first; to check for ripeness, gently squeeze the neck of the pear closest to the stem and it should give slightly.
