Prep Time

25 minutes

Cook Time

35 minutes


6 servings



2 tablespoons butter

2 eggs

¼ cup pure maple syrup

1 ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk

2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats

1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

2 small to medium ripe Bartlett pears, diced (about 1 ½ cups diced pears)

¼ cup finely diced walnuts or pecans (optional)



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9X9 inch pan with oil or nonstick cooking spray and set aside
  2. Brown the butter: add butter to a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Once melted, the butter will begin to crackle and then eventually foam. Whisk constantly during this process. After a couple of minutes, the butter will begin to brown and turn a nice golden amber color on the bottom of the saucepan. Continue to whisk and remove from heat as soon as the butter begins to brown and give off a nutty aroma. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, maple syrup, almond milk, oil and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt to the wet ingredients. Mix until combined, then stir in diced pears and finally the browned butter.
  5. Pour mixture into the prepared pan and smooth top. Sprinkle with nuts if desired.
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown and center is set.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
