Monday Munchies: Cinnamon Pear Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal On Thursday evening, I threw together a batch of baked oatmeal to use up some pears that were nearing the end of their lifespan.  My original recipe calls for quite a bit of fat (great for Anna, bad for Mama) so I decided to lighten up this recipe a bit.  Clara, Anna, and I enjoyed the results.  Bo was in a mood and wouldn’t try it.  He gave his to Anna and had yogurt with granola for breakfast on Friday morning instead.

Cinnamon Pear Baked Oatmeal

  • 1/2 cup applesauce (replaces oil)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp flax seed mixed with water to make a paste (replaces eggs)
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp wheat germ
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 small pears, diced

Mix applesauce, sugar, and flax mixture until smooth.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Fold in diced pear. Pour into greased 8 x 8 pan and bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Also great with diced apple!

  1. I’m working on making some of my dessert recipes a little healthier, so I’m going to try your egg replacement and oil substitute tips. Thanks for sharing!
