Ginger Pear Baked Oatmeal

Even oatmeal haters will love a good baked oatmeal. Made with pears and ginger, this is perfect for fall.

Okay, before you say anything, I know.. I know a lot of you out there are oatmeal haters, but TRUST ME. you will be oatmeal haters no more once you have tried baked oatmeal!

And all of the various varieties of baked oatmeal I have made over the past few years. Like my caramelized bananaapple and original, just to name a few.

Ginger Pear Baked Oatmeal

To be honest, this recipe is very similar to the ginger nectarine baked oatmeal I made ages ago. But I wanted remake it for the fall, and ginger + pears are a match made in heaven!

If you don't want to make a huge batch of oatmeal, by all means scale it down to your liking. But for me, I adore having a large batch of whatever I am making. This is because as soon as Monday hits, I know that I will have no time for anything - apart from school stuff.

Not that I'm complaining. I adore making lessons and teaching, but I know that if I don't have breakfast ready before I wake up, I might not be eating anything in the morning.

If you don't have pears on hand, use whatever fruits you can find. As I mentioned earlier, I have made this with nectarines which is seriously my favourite oatmeal combination ever!!  Somehow in my mind, nectarines and ginger go together perfectly. But pears and ginger come in a close second.

Hopefully I can make this oatmeal last till the end of the week. But if I come home late after staying at school for hours helping students and planning my lessons, I don't think I would say no to oatmeal for dinner. Or late night snack!

  1. Love all the flavors in this! And I so agree that baked oatmeal is often much more enjoyable than regular :)


  2. How to prevent getting "Hangry" by Cathleen - yes!I could totally see myself having this for breakfast as well as dessert. A good crumble is SO good, and it warms you inside out. This sounds lovely!
    Tonight I had a mishap when making dinner, and accidentally put berries in my stir-fry instead of quorn! Thankfully it didn't taste horrible though, and the noodles turned pink! *MondagDinnerFail*
    Hope you've had a good start to your week! xx

  3. Love baked oatmeal. Ginger and pear sound like a great combo ever. Super yum and deliciousness. I bet it tasted divine.


  4. I am the exact opposite of an oatmeal hater. I eat it almost every day and could probably write love poems about it. This baked oatmeal looks great and I love the ginger!

  5. Yum! This looks amazing! I've been trying to get my husband into oatmeal, but the only time he's tried it was about a year ago when I wasn't home. He didn't add anything- no brown sugar, nothing. And of course, he hated it! Silly man. But this? I think I could get him to try this! 😁

  6. I love oatmeal. I made a pumpkin one once and enjoyed that. This looks fun to try.
