  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F, with a shelf set in the middle. Grease an 9" x 9" or 8" x 10" dish with butter or oil.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
    2 ½ cups rolled oats, ½ teaspoon baking powder, ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the tahini, egg, vanilla and maple syrup until smooth.
    ½ cup tahini, 2 medium eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, ¼ cup maple syrup
  • Next, whisk in the milk until well combined.
    1 ¾ cups milk
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine, making sure everything is well mixed.
  • Stir in most of the cherries (reserving a few for the top), chocolate chips and chopped almonds.
    2 cups cherries, ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips, ¼ cup raw almonds
  • Pour into the prepared dish and spread out evenly. Arrange extra cherries (and chocolate chips if desired) on top and bake for 35-40 minutes or until set and the top is golden brown.
  • Once baked, cut into 8 pieces and enjoy warm or follow the instructions in the FAQs for storage if preparing ahead. Serve with a tahini maple drizzle if you would like - simply whisk together the tahini, maple syrup and sea salt until smooth.
    1 tablespoon tahini, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, pinch sea salt
