Baked Oatmeal with Pears
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch-square baking dish with cooking spray.Advertisement
Mix oats, walnuts, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cloves in a large bowl. Whisk almond milk (or milk), 1 cup yogurt, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla in a medium bowl.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Gently mix in pears. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish.
Bake until golden brown, 45 to 55 minutes. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon of the remaining yogurt, if desired.
Tips: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
Both ripe and unripe pears work in this recipe; however, unripe pears will hold their shape better during cooking.
To make ahead: When cool, wrap individual servings in plastic wrap or transfer to mason jars and refrigerate for up to 3 days, or wrap in parchment paper and freeze for up to 2 weeks. To serve, remove plastic wrap and microwave for 30 seconds (2 to 3 minutes if frozen). Top with 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt, if desired.
