  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat an 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the steel cut oats, pepitas, ground flax seed, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond-coconut milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, egg and vanilla extract.
  • Stir the almond-coconut milk mixture into the oat mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Add the dried tart cherries and stir again.
  • Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan. Bake until the oatmeal is set and golden brown, 55 to 60 minutes.
  • Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes. Cut into 9 squares. Serve with additional almond-coconut milk, if desired.
