Pear Baked Oatmeal

Make this Pear Baked Oatmeal the night before, and pop it in the oven first thing in the morning! You’ll have a hearty, healthy and delicious breakfast! This recipe is a great way to use up ripe pears.

Baked oatmeals are a delicious and easy breakfast! They can be made ahead of time or enjoyed the same day. And they’re great in all different flavours, like this Pear Baked Oatmeal.

Pear Baked Oatmeal

Perfect for busy mornings!

Baked oatmeals are one of my go-to morning recipes, especially in the fall and winter. There’s just something so nice about a big dish of warm, hearty oatmeal to enjoy on a chilly morning. I especially like to make them when I know we’re going to have a busy day ahead. The night before I take 10 minutes and assemble all of the ingredients and put the dish in the fridge overnight. Then first thing the next morning, I pop it in the oven, and about 40 minutes later breakfast is served! I can’t even tell you how convenient this is when we’re dashing off for a 9:30AM rugby game!

Slow Cooker Pear Sauce

Or bake it now.

You can also make this Pear Baked Oatmeal the day you want to serve it. If you wish to serve it the same day, just assemble, let sit for at least 15 minutes, then bake and serve right away.

Pear Baked Oatmeal

Great for ripe pears.

The key ingredient and flavour star of the show was a homemade pear sauce I recently made. I had a giant box of pears that were rapidly becoming overripe, so I had to think of ways to use it up. The first thing I made was a Slow Cooker Pear Sauce, which I then used in this pear baked oatmeal. The result was a delicious and creamy baked oatmeal, with all the flavours of fall.

Pear Baked Oatmeal Recipe Tips:

  • PEAR SAUCE: This recipe calls for this homemade slow cooker pear sauce. BUT you an also make a quick sauce to add in instead. See ‘Handy Tip’ below.
  • OATS: This recipe called for old fashioned rolled oats but you can also use quick oats.
  • MILK:  Use 2% or whole milk for this recipe. The creamier the milk, the creamier the oatmeal. You can also use a non-dairy milk like oat milk or almond milk.
  • PREP TIP! I like to use a hand blender to blend the wet ingredients (milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla with the cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar too). It makes everything nice and creamy.
  • SERVING SUGGESTION: Enjoy this baked oatmeal with a little milk or cream and some brown sugar or extra pear sauce.
  • DOUBLE IT! If you’re serving more than 6 people, just double the recipe and use a bigger dish. SO good.
  • LEFTOVERS: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 – 3 days. Reheat individual portions in the microwave.

Handy tip!

You can make this baked oatmeal without having to make a big batch of pear sauce in a slow cooker. Use about 3 ripe pears. Remove the cores, cut into chunks and add to a small saucepan with about 2 tbsp water, 1 tbsp sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Simmer the pears until they’re soft, about 15 minutes.

  1. Sorry if this is a silly question… The recipe says to put the dish in a “cold oven”. So does that mean that the oven is coming up to temperature while the oatmeal is already in the oven rather than preheating it first to reach 350?

  2. 5 stars
    I made this oatmeal yesterday and it turned out great. I did cheat though and used a store bought pear sauce. Thank you for another yummy recipe!

  3. Hello there! Sorry if this is a silly question but the recipe lists oil but not a specific type. Is there one that is better for this recipe?
