6 servings / 12 ½ hrs

Prep 15  min / Cook 8 min / Refrigeration 12 hrs

  • 1 cup (250 mL) large-flake rolled oats (see Tip, below)
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) sliced almonds
  • 1 firm-ripe pear
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) ground flax seeds
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) ground nutmeg or cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups (375 mL) 1% plain yogurt
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) maple syrup or liquid honey
  • 1 ½ cups (375 mL) fresh or frozen raspberries (thawed if frozen), divided

  1. 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 (50 mL) aside for topping; cover and store at room temperature.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
