Make this Pear Baked Oatmeal the night before, and pop it in the oven first thing in the morning! You’ll have a hearty, healthy and delicious breakfast!

Baked oatmeals are one of my go-to morning recipes, especially in the fall and winter. There’s just something so nice about a big dish of warm, hearty oatmeal to enjoy on a chilly morning. I especially like to make them when I know we’re going to have a busy morning ahead. The night before a busy day, I take 10 minutes and assemble all of the ingredients and put the dish in the fridge overnight. Then first thing the next morning, I pop it in the oven, and about 40 minutes later breakfast is served! I can’t even tell you how convenient this is when we’re dashing off for a 9:30AM rugby game!
I have made quite a few different flavours of baked oatmeals over the years, and you can see them at the bottom of this post. But the most recent variation I made was a Pear Baked Oatmeal. And it was SO delicious.
The key ingredient and flavour star of the show was a homemade pear sauce I recently made. I had a giant box of pears that were rapidly becoming overripe, so I had to think of ways to use it up. The first thing I made was a Slow Cooker Pear Sauce, which I then used in this pear baked oatmeal. The result was a delicious and creamy baked oatmeal, with all the flavours of fall.
Enjoy this baked oatmeal with a little milk, or indulge and use cream! This recipe is a great one if you’ve got company as well. If you’re serving more than 6 people, just double the recipe and use a bigger dish. SO good.
