Pear and Almond Butter Baked Oatmeal

In 2013 I visited Earthbound Farm with a small group of bloggers. I loved this trip for many reasons, but one of the lasting highlights has been my friendship with fellow blogger Ashley, who I met on the trip.

When I think of Ashley, two things immediately come to mind: photography and breakfast. Ashley is an incredibly talented and accomplished food photographer, and has been instrumental in turning my own photos from scary to at least decent.

She’s also the biggest breakfast lover I’ve ever met. On every trip we’ve been on, I look forward to seeing her wake up and scan a table full of breakfast options then put together a unique and delicious concoction that she of course then captures beautifully on camera. And she’s been known to eat not just one breakfast but two — one sweet and one savory 😉

In a few short months, my sweet friend Ashley is going to become a mama! So today, I’m honored to share a breakfast recipe with you that I’ve created for her virtual baby shower: Pear and Almond Butter Baked Oatmeal.

This easy, fall-inspired dish reminds me of Ashley not only because it’s oatmeal – one of her favorite food groups – but also because it’s gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free. It’s hearty enough that you won’t need that second breakfast…though if you choose to have seconds, neither she nor I will judge.

You can easily make this dish the night before, so it’s perfect for a holiday brunch or a busy weekday morning.

Cuisine: American

Serves: 4 servings


  • 1½ cups quick oats (gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 2½ cups chopped very ripe pears (about 2 large pears – I used Bartlett)

  2. Combine oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in an 8×8 baking dish.
  3. Place almond butter, maple syrup, and 1 Tbsp of the coconut cream in a small glass bowl or pitcher and microwave for 30 seconds until soft. Use a small whisk or fork to make a smooth sauce.
  4. Pour half of this almond butter mixture into the baking dish, along with the chopped pears, almond milk, and remaining 3 Tbsp of coconut cream. Stir until ingredients are incorporated.
  5. Bake oatmeal for about 25 minutes or until oats are fully cooked.
