Spiced Pear Oatmeal Bake - A cozy baked oatmeal recipe filled with oats, nutmeg and pears. A delicious fall-food inspired breakfast recipe.
Cool fall mornings call for a warm and yummy breakfast. My first thought…pancakes and waffles, but most are sugar-laden and full of refined-flour. These ingredients don’t often result in feeling full for very long and aren’t so great for your blood sugar levels.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to enjoy pancakes and waffles every once in a while, but when I need a breakfast that will keep me feeling satisfied, these sweet treats just won’t cut it. Cue the wholesome, fiber-filled goodness of oats!
This delicious fall-food inspired spiced pear oatmeal bake hits the spot. Oats are a whole grain, and are a true superfood packing in over 4 grams of fiber per cup!
Oats even have a specific type of fiber called beta-glucan that’s known to help lower cholesterol. This oat-filled breakfast bake will satisfy the taste buds, and keep you feeling full longer than a sugar-packed breakfast.
Our spiced pear oatmeal bake is a great make-ahead recipe and perfect for a cozy weekend breakfast.

Spiced Pear Oatmeal Bake: Tips, Tricks and Tools
This oatmeal bake is not super sweet. Feel free to add more sweetener if you’d like. I generally make the bake less sweet and add maple syrup upon serving if I want it to be sweeter.
Make it dairy-free by using a plant-based milk like almond milk or soy milk.
Make it gluten-free by using certified gluten-free oats.
