Spiced pear baked oatmeal

After being given some ripe pears, I set about finding a recipe to use them up, and liked the look of this flapjack-style snack.

The end product

It was a quick make ā€“ only about 20 minutes to prepare, and then 25 minutes to bake. I was concerned at how wet the mixture was compared to the flapjacks I have made before, but it did firm up once baked.

Rather runny!

The end result was very tasty, though Iā€™d half the amount of ground cloves another time as some mouthfuls were overpoweringly clovey. The lovely spice mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove does go very well with a cuppa and has a Chai quality to it.

I enjoyed this recipe as it was so quick and tasty, and it gave me the chance to use my lovely ceramic cup measures as itā€™s an American recipe.

A word of warning though ā€“ eat these on the day they are made, or keep them in the fridge. I tried one a few days after baking and it had turned rather rancid ā€“ yuck!
