For breakfast, I tend to make one thing (a lot) and then eat it until I'm quite tired of it. Most recently that has been my homemade granola with yogurt. I just finished up my last batch, so I was looking for something new to try for this week.
I hadn't made my Pineapple oatmeal bake in a long time, so I thought I'd try to do a fall variation on that. This is what I came up with and I have to admit, it's quite good.
Here's what you'll need:
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 1/2 of a 15oz can of 100% pumpkin (save the other half in the fridge for the next time you make this, which will be later this week because this is good!)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 2/3 cup old fashioned oatmeal (NOT the instant kind)
- 15oz can of lightly sweetened or unsweetened pears, reserve the juice
Spray a 9x9 glass pan with cooking spray and pour into the pan.
Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes.
I keep this in the fridge and cut out a piece each morning. It microwaves well and makes a quick breakfast.
