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 – 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 I’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 it’s an American recipe.

Little-used cup measures 🙂

A word of warning though – 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 – yuck!
