Warm Cinnamon Pears with Oatmeal, Drizzled with Maple Syrup


My husband, the farmer, brought home a bag filled with pears the other day that his parents picked.   I needed to figure out something to do with what was more pears than we would eat.   I decided to cut some up and warm them in my mini-CrockPot.   I added some cinnamon and a little bit of dry oatmeal in with the pears, added a little water for moisture and -voila!   It turned out fantastically!   It was so good, and I’m excited to share it with you.   This recipe is great for breakfast, a healthy snack or a satisfying dessert!

I made a small amount of this, so measurements listed are enough for approximately 2-3 people to enjoy.   You can easily alter it to fit your needs and taste.

Here’s what I used:

3-4 pears


4 tablespoons water

a small handful of dry oatmeal

maple syrup or honey

I used my mini-CrockPot to create this delightful concoction.   I sprayed the inside with cooking spray, then dropped the peeled, cut pears in.   I then sprinkled cinnamon over the pears, and dropped some dry oatmeal in (I used Quaker Oats).   Lastly, I added 4 tablespoons of water and stirred it all together gently before placing on the lid.

I left it warming in the mini-CrockPot for about three hours, on what I believe would be equivalent to a low setting on a regular CrockPot.   I periodically checked to make sure the pears were tender and warm.   You may need to add another tablespoon of water if things seem to dry, but 4 tablespoons of water was perfect for the amounts I used.

When it was ready, I spooned it into a small bowl and drizzled it with maple syrup.   Honey would also be a great choice in leu of the maple syrup.   Warm, fresh cinnamon pears with oatmeal, drizzled in sweet syrup… it was delicious and filling.
