Cinnamon Pear Baked Oatmeal (Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Please welcome Anne of Quick and Easy, Cheap and Healthy.  You’ve heard me talk about her before.  She and I think a lot alike when it comes to food.  We like to keep things real and simple.  We also know what it means to deal with multiple food allergies.

I have been making baked oatmeal adapted from one of Anne’s recipes for several months now.  We love it so much that I asked Anne to share it here for the rest of you to enjoy.  This Cinnamon Pear Baked Oatmeal is what she came up with.  I can’t wait to try this one!


I love the versatility of oats! And with my sons’ allergies to dairy, eggs, and wheat (among other things), we eat them a lot for breakfast.  A lot is an understatement. Almost every day would be more accurate!

That’s why I love the versatility of oats – they never get old, because you can make them in a million different ways. Granola is one of my favorite applications of oatmeal, but baked oatmeal is a close second.

Baked oatmeal is almost like a coffee cake, which is how my husband refers to it. Whenever I ask him what I should make for our weekly breakfast-for-dinner, this is what he requests. Or at least some variation of it. (To be honest, I never make it the same way twice!)


Cinnamon Pear Baked Oatmeal


  • 3 cups oats
  • ¼ cup unrefined sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 3 TBSP flax seed + 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1 cup rice milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • ¼ cup honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup olive or coconut oil
  • 1 pear, grated


  1. Whisk together dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together liquid ingredients until well blended.
  3. Stir liquid ingredients gently into dry ingredients, just until blended.
  4. Pour into greased 8×8 pan and bake for 35-40 minutes at 350F.

    This sounds pretty good, Anne. I like idea of adding a pear instead of the apple I typically would add. Question for you though, have you made this with certified GF oats? For myself, I just use the regular kind, but I’ve found that when I cook with the GF variety for others, they don’t bake the same and they get really mushy. 🙁 I’m wondering if the flax helps with that?

    I just put these in the oven! I only made a few changes…I used allspice instead of just cinnamon because that was what I had. I used raspberries instead of a pear because again…what I had in the fridge! I’m very excited to see how these turn out!
