3 Tbs. of maple syrup or brown sugar
¾ cup of non dairy milk
¼ cup of unsweetened applesauce

½ tsp. of salt
Line an 8 or 9 inch pan with parchment paper or non-stick foil. Coat with oil spray.
Arrange the pear slices as you like. Drizzle the maple syrup or sprinkle the brown sugar over the slices.
Mix the wet ingredients together.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
Pour the batter over the pears and gently smooth the batter.
