  • 2 large ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2″ pieces

  • 1 1/2 cup diced and peeled ripe pears, 1-/2 inch dice

  • 5 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 1 cup uncooked quick oats*

  • 5 tablespoons chopped walnuts

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • pinch of salt

  • 1 cup fat-free milk, or dairy-free milk such as almond or soy

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 375° Lightly spray a 8 x 8″ or 9 x 9″ ceramic baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.

  • Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the ceramic dish. Top with the pears, 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon, 2 tablespoons of the maple and cover with foil.

  • Bake for 20 minutes, until the bananas get soft.

  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of the walnuts, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt; stir together.

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining maple syrup, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.

  • Remove the fruit from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the baked fruit.

  • Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible over the oats.

  • Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and walnuts over the top.

  • Bake the oatmeal for about 35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.
