Pear & Almond Baked Oatmeal


Welcome to oatmeal week on my blog! If you're running out of ways to eat your oatmeal, you've come to the right place! I thought it was time to update my standard Oatmeal recipe so I decided to give baked oatmeal a try! I know I should probably hold off using the oven until winter, but oh well! lol I was excited to be able to use my new Wean Green containers. I prepare the bowl before I start my morning workout, then 20 minutes before the video is done I pop the oatmeal in the oven so I smell it baking as I finish up my workout. Even if you're not a big pear fan, this recipe was so delicious! Check out my post about the nutritional value of pears.

Ingredients:


  • ½ cup rolled oats 
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 pear
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp almond extract (key ingredient)
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • pinch of ginger
  • pinch of salt


  • Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a single-serve ramekin with nonstick spray.
    2. Cut your pear in half and peel one side. Set one half aside. With the other half, mash it up inside the bowl. This is what provides the sugar to your oatmeal.
    3. Add milk, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Stir until mixed with the mashed pear.
    4. Add oats, ginger, baking powder, and salt. Stir.
    5. With the remaining pear half, dice it into cubes, chunks, or slices and add to the batter. Stir gently.
    6. Pour into the prepared ramekin and bake for 20 minutes.
