I've been craving all sorts of fall fruits right now, but pears have to be at the very top of my favorites list! I'm OBSESSED with baking them with just a little bit of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon and/or pumpkin spice.

Ingredients
Oats
  • 1½ cup water
  • ¼ cup steel cut oats
  • 2 tbsp almond milk (optional)
Pear Topping
  • 1 pear (Barlette, Forelle, etc.)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp honey
Additional toppings (opt.)
  • Granola
  • Peanut butter
  • Chia seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven (I recommend a toaster oven) to 375ºF.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add oats, bring to a simmer, and cook for 25-30, or until the oats have soaked up all the water. During the last 5-10 minutes of cooking, make sure to stir very frequently, because for some reason oats always love sticking to the bottom of the pan during the last few minutes of cooking.
  3. Half and core the pear. Drizzle both halves with honey, and season with cinnamon. Roast in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, until the edges are golden brown and the fruit is soft. Let cool, then cut into bite sized pieces.
  4. Add oats to a bowl. Loosen with the 2 tbsp of almond milk, stirring to combine. Top with pears and additional toppings of choice (including but not limited to: granola, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.)
