Baked Pears

  • 2 pears, halved (such as Bosc pears)
  • 1 tablespoon water, filtered
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon date syrup

Cinnamon Oatmeal

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats (for gluten free, use GF oats)
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • optional: sweetener of choice such as date, agave or maple syrup, coconut sugar


  • a couple raw almonds
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter, or other nut butter of choice


Preparing baked pears

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C / 350°F and prepare an oven-safe baking dish.
  • Slice pears into halves lengthwise, remove the seeds. In a small bowl mix water, lemon juice, spices, and date syrup. Cover the pears with the ingredients and give the bowl a little shake so the ingredients mix and cover all the pears. Place pears flat side down in your baking dish, or on the tray. You should end up with 4 flat pear pieces. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the pears are tender. While the pears are baking, prepare oatmeal.

Preparing oatmeal

  • Add oats, water, and applesauce to a saucepan and place over medium heat, bringing to a low boil and cooking until thickened, stirring occasionally (about 3-5 minutes). Lower heat to low and add spices. Stir to combine until smooth and continue to cook and stir until your desired consistency is reached (roughly another 3-5 minutes). If you prefer your oats runnier, feel free to add more water (or plant milk). If you prefer them thicker, cook for a bit longer.
  • Transfer to a bowl, garnish with some almonds, nut butter, and bakes pear slices, and/or whatever else your heart desires. I like scraping and mixing half of the pear into the oats while eating!
