Oatmeal Pear Crisp

My grandmother used to say that the reason she was so healthy was because she ate a bowl of oatmeal every morning.  She lived 97 years.  So, there must be some truth in the oatmeal thing.  Unfortunately for me, I'm not a huge fan of "traditional" oatmeal.  Needless to say, when I figure out new ways to eat oatmeal, I get really excited.  Today's recipe is one that uses oatmeal in your dessert.  Or, if you can tolerate super-sweet meals in the morning, it could work as a breakfast as well.

  • 1 snack pack of diced pears (4 oz size), drained well
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats (not instant)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Pan Insert to Use:  Divider Pan

Servings:  1

1.  Spray one well with non-stick cooking spray; preheat grill.
2.  Mix all dry ingredients in a small bowl: oats, sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon.
3.  Stir in the melted butter and pears.
4.  Spoon mixture into sprayed well and cook for about 5 minutes.
5.  Slide out of pan, into a bowl.  Let cool a minute or two before eating.
