I love the holidays almost as much as I love breakfast.
Nothing beats eating good food and spending time with the people you love. Since the holidays revolve around these two things, I decided to combine them with my love for breakfast to make something delicious to share with my family.
I was invited to join Bai in celebrating the holidays with some of their healthy all-natural drinks. All of Bai‘s drinks have 5 calories, a low glycemic index, and are bursting with antioxidants. They’re perfect for sipping on plain, adding to your morning smoothie, creating a healthier version of your favorite cocktail, or in this case, adding to a batch of baked oatmeal for an extra flavor boost.
I have been all about the pears lately, so I decided to experiment with Bai Congo Pear. This flavor is perfectly pear-y and not overly sweet, making it incredibly versatile to work with.
On Thanksgiving morning, I prepared a delicious batch of spiced pear baked oatmeal to share with my family. I split the liquid using half almond milk and half Bai, which really upped the ante flavor wise.
This breakfast is warm, filling, and perfectly festive for the holidays. Eat it plain, or top it with berries, almond butter, or greek yogurt for an extra flavor kick.
Make them fresh to share with a group, or make them on the weekend to reheat throughout the week for a healthy breakfast or snack.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
(double/triple the recipe & use a bigger pan to serve a larger group)
- 2 medium pears
- 2 cups of rolled oats
- 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
- 1 cup of Bai Congo Pear (sub for another cup of milk if needed – but this adds extra pear flavor)
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 pan with coconut oil or cooking spray. (I used a bigger pan in the photos, but would recommend using a smaller one so the oats are thicker)
- Combine the oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice in a large mixing bowl.
- In another bowl, combine the almond milk, Bai Congo Pear, egg, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. Mix together until the egg is combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
- Wash and chop the two pears and mix them into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
- Pour the mixture into the greased pan. Feel free to top the oats with extra cinnamon or pear slices if you so desire.
- Place the pan in the oven and bake for 40 minutes.
- Eat up!
