Equipment

  • Cast iron skillet

Ingredients

  • 2 bosc pears, diced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup Old fashioned or rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Vanilla Greek yogurt, optional

Instructions

  • Heat 2 tbsp butter in a cast iron skillet. Meanwhile, dice pears and set aside.
  • Add oats, honey, and cinnamon; cook until oats are toasted and ingredients start to "clump". Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add pears, ginger, lemon, and vanilla extract (use additional butter if needed). Stir until coated and cook until pears are tender, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Once tender, spread pears so they cover the bottom of the skillet. Top with oat mixture and cook an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from skillet and serve with a scroop of vanilla Greek yogurt or ice cream!

Notes

You may need to double the recipe if using a large cast iron skillet. You can also use a baking dish and cook in the oven.
