Baked Oatmeal Recipe with Pears

You probably know how much I love baked oatmeal, it’s seriously so good and so great to make with any fruit that is in season. Here I use over-ripe bananas with fall pears and maple syrup to it. It’s the perfect fall or winter breakfast.

Baked oatmeal is also great for meal prep. Bake it, slice it into portions and refrigerate. Then pop it in the microwave a few seconds to heat up.

Healthy Baked Oatmeal Notes & Tips

  • This fall inspired baked oatmeal recipe is loaded with wholesome ingredients—bananas, pears, oats, nuts and maple syrup. Vanilla and cinnamon adds a sweet-spicy note that enhances the flavor of the fruit.
  • This baked oatmeal is satiating on it’s own, but you can add some Greek yogurt on the side if you wish.

  • Refrigerate 4 to 5 days. Freeze up to 3 months.

Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup diced and peeled ripe pears, 1-/2 inch dice
  • 5 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup uncooked quick oats*

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining maple syrup, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Remove the fruit from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the baked fruit.

  1. Very tasty! I reduced the maple syrup to 3 tbsp ( 2 with the fruit and 1 with the milk/eggs) and it was plenty sweet for us. Will try it with 2 tbsp maple syrup next time. Thank you!

  2. What can I replace the banana with in this, or any, of the recipes? I cannot stand baked anything with banana. Thank you for your advice!

  3. I’d love to make this! I have a ton of organic rolled oats I got at Costco. Has anyone tried this bake with the rolled oats as opposed to the old fashioned? Rolled are a bit firmer & thicker, so I’m not sure if it’s going to work them.

    1. I am wondering the same thing! So we usually soak our oats overnight, with lemon and salt and water. Then they cook in 5 min, so they are “quicker” soaked so I’m thinking this may work?! 

  4. The new personal points feature is amazing. I don’t know how you did it but it makes tracking your recipes so easy!!  Thank you for doing this!!

    I am interested in trying this recipe using premixed protein drink, like the organic Gina uses in her banana protein oatmeal, instead of milk? I don’t see why it wouldn’t work, but wondering if anyone has tried it?

    Thanks!  

  6. Hey Gina! I went to input this into my WeightWatchers plan for this week, and it actually gave me a different number for the green plan. When I input the nutrition values it has, it tells me that a serving is 9 points, not 6!

    They’re tasty, so I’m here for spending 9 points on it for a morning treat, but I thought it was worth mentioning!

    Love all your work by the way!! Your recipes rescue me every week!

    1. Hi Ashley! Did you use the recipe builder? The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

  7. Absolutely love this, make it all the time. Used honey instead of maple syrup because I didn’t have any. Turned out great. You can sub the pear for another fruit or add blueberries too, but just the way it is it turns out so tasty. I added extra walnuts to make it more filling. I keep it in the fridge and for breakfast put a piece in the microwave and top it with greek yogurt. So good!

  8. We love this recipe.  I make it exactly as written, although I put it in a larger baking dish, 9×13.  I have to say that I find this overly sweet with that much maple syrup, especially if the pears and bananas are ripe.  I only use 2T and feel that is more than sweet enough.  Other than that complaint. we love this.

  9. I love this recipe. Literally life changing. So healthy and so delicious. I make it every week and keep in the frig to reheat a slice each morning. I add ground flaxseeds for more protein. Trying the blueberry banana version this week!

    This was delicious! I used old-fashioned oats and added a dollop of yoghurt when eating it. My only complaint is I wanted more than 1 serving. 

  11. I’m not a big breakfast person but have been trying to add things other than egg in. The baked oatmeal is great. I’ve made it twice now the first time with apples (because that’s what I had) and the second time with peaches. I’ve had it plain for breakfast, paired with Greek yogurt for lunch, and topped with sugar free cool whip as a dessert. I was always a ‘fruit doesn’t belong in dessert’ person but this is definitely changing my find!

  12. I only used 1 T of maple syrup mixed with the milk but a little more fruit and my kids loved it. They asked that next time we make it with raisins too.

  13. Yum yum yum!!!! It is similar to a fruit crisp but without the butter and flour calories!! Hurray! I made it exactly as directed but I did not have quite enough maple syrup so I filled in with brown sugar instead, mixed in with the egg/milk mixture. Turned out great! Also used old fashioned oats as I did not have quick oats. 

  14. OMG this is so good!!! Satisfying in every bite. Now I’d like to try some your other baked oatmeal recipes. I didn’t have instant oats, so used regular. Otherwise, made just as described. Next time I might add a few raisins.

  15. This was delicious! I made this for the first time, and my DH who said he doesn’t like oatmeal devoured it and asked me to make it again. Thanks again, Gina!
