Pear Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Singles

I love gingerbread. I love it as cookies, as cake and now as these Pear Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Singles. Gingerbread for breakfast? Yes please!

  1. OMG. I am so excited to try these. I love gingerbread and pears. I love your oatmeal single recipes-the apple cinnamon one is my favorite-so far.

    Thanks for another great recipe!: )

  2. These are in the oven now…. smell amazing!!

  3. Emily–these look delicious !!! Have you ever baked these in an 8 ” x 8 ” pan and if so, at what temp and baking time ???? Thanks so much for yet another recipe

  4. Made these this morning and the kids loved them…I thought they were delicious too! A keeper for sure. Thanks for this recipe

  5. Emily,
    I just wanted to tell you that my family and I have been enjoying your recipes for a few years…thank-you! Also, I am so pleased that you are continuing to publish points plus information as I will not be using the new ww program…I will continue with the much more livable (!) Pointsplus program. So thanks again!

    • Thanks Doreen! I’m so happy you’re loving the recipes :). I bought a Weight Watchers PointsPlus calculator just for that reason!

  6. Has anyone tried making these without the pears? If so, what was the outcome?

  7. I made them with Apple instead of pear. The flavor profile is spot on.

  8. These are seriously delicious! In fact, all of your Baked Oatmeal Single recipes are incredible. Thanks for posting.

  9. I made these yesterday to have a quick WW breakfast ready for a few days, but the kids and husband ate them all! They’re so good! So right now I have a double batch in the oven. This was my first trip to your site, but I have a feeling I’ll be here a lot!

  10. I calculate 4pts.per serving on my smartpoints calculator!

    • Hi Gail, the WW recipe builder does not count the points for 0 point foods, so using the nutrition information and the recipe builder will not get you the correct results as it will count the points for the pears.

  11. I’m also trying this recipe, I entered the “point obvious” Items into the WW recipe builder also (eliminating the pears, applesauce, and baking powders” and it also gave me 4 points. Just a FYI.
    I’m still happy to eat these!

  12. When I made these I didn’t use molasis but substituted the molasis with maple syrup. They end up a little runny looking but cook beautifully. I had to leave them in for another 5 minutes.
    Great recipe, can’t believe no flour is required. Perfect for breakfast.

  13. ^^ that sound says molasses*

  14. I make different muffins every week for a ladies Bible study and I always laugh because I never know whether I can trust the numbers, that is to say, sometimes a recipe for 12 muffins makes 12 but sometimes (quite often) it makes 18!! Your recipe made 12 or in my case 24 since I doubled everything and then I tasted one and immediately made another batch!! The ladies are going to love these but there won’t be 36 left by the time I take them tomorrow night! They don’t rise really but they taste absolutely fantastic. Thanks for a great recipe!

  15. Can you substitute this same receipe with apple in place of pears?

  16. Just a tiny bit damp for me though the edges are dark brown – I think I had either a bit too much liquid or too few oats. I also used apple and they smell amazing 🙂

    maybe I will toast them for breakfast. I’m really excited to find low point breakfasts – all my usual suspects doubled on smart points.

  17. I made these today, but substituted fresh figs for the pears. They turned out amazing!!!

  18. These look delicious !!! Would the points value lessen or otherwise change if the brown sugar was omitted entirely ??? amount used cut in half to only 2 Tablespoons ?? thanks

    • Hi Doris, I only have this recipe calculated the way I wrote it so if you want to play around with quantities or make changes you’ll have to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on weightwatchers.com. I hope you enjoy them!

  19. What a delicious recipe! Emily, you mentioned that you store them in the refrigerator. How long will they keep? Is it ok to freeze some and then heat up in the microwave?

  20. Excellent muffin5 stars

  21. I made these last night and they are delicious!! Perfect Gingerbread flavor and so moist. Thank you for your many delicious recipes.

  22. Absolutely yummy. These have been a great start to a holiday week with family visiting. Everyone wakes up in a different time zone. I appreciate you having a measurement for the pear. I will double the spices next time. I used Trader Joe’s gluten free oats.
    Would you please create more gingerbread recipes ie greek yogurt, waffles etc. Thanks for all your hard work5 stars

  23. Do you think flax eggs substitute would work for the eggs?
