Ingredients

1 cup chopped pecans

1/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon plus 1 pinch salt

2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (do not use quick-cooking or instant)

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 cups low-fat milk (1 percent)

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

1 large egg

2 tablespoons canola or other neutral tasting oil

1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 medium Golden Delicious apple (unpeeled), cored and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (1 cup)

1 or 2 medium carrots, scrubbed well, then shredded (1 cup)

1/2 cup raisins

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish or a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate with cooking oil spray. Mix together 1/2 cup of the pecans, 2 tablespoons of the coconut, 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon, the brown sugar and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl.

Stir together the oats, baking powder, the remaining 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a mixing bowl.

Whisk together the milk, maple syrup, egg, oil and vanilla extract in a liquid measuring cup. Pour the milk mixture over the oat mixture, stirring to combine, then mix in the remaining 1/2 cup of pecans and the remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut, plus the apple, carrots and raisins. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Top with the pecan-coconut mixture. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden at the edges and just set at the center. Serve warm.
