Something different for breakfast!
I was staring into the fridge this morning, running through my breakfast options:
- Yogurt mess
- French Toast
- PB sandwich
But nothing sounded good. I wanted something different.
I’m a huge fan of baked oatmeals because the texture is so unique – more like a warm, thick, chewy slice of bread than a bowl of oats. Plus, you can mix up the flavors easily by adding different fruit (apples, bananas, etc). Today’s star was pear!
Baked Pear Oatmeal
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/4 cup whole wheat pancake mix
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 small pear
- 2 tablespoons chopped cashews
- Drizzle maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Slice pear in half. Chop one half and thinly slice the other.
- Mix all ingredients but thinly sliced pear, cashews, and maple syrup in a small bowl.
- Pour mix into mini casserole dish and top with remaining pear and cashews.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
- Drizzle maple syrup on top.
Dense and chewy – the way I like it!

Do you get into breakfast ruts, too?
