I’m a sickie-face today. Woke up with tummy troubles. I’m just now getting around to eating, and I need to eat things that will be easy on my poor tummy. Here’s what I had in the house. I set out to make pear oatmeal bake, but I also had two apples to use up so I stopped baking about halfway through to stuff some of the pear oatmeal bake into the apples so I can eat them at the office tomorrow.
Pear Oatmeal Bake Recipe Ingredients
- 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/3 up brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups vanilla yogurt
- 2 diced pears
- (Plus several apples with the cores cut out if you want to stuff them, OR you can slice them up with the pears and toss it in with the oatmeal bake!)
Pear Oatmeal Bake Recipe Directions
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cake pan with non-stick spray if you like (optional). In a large bowl, stir together the oats, raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, yogurt and pears. Spread evenly in your cake pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until it’s set. I stopped mine about 20 minutes through to stuff my two little apples, and then popped them both back in for the last 20 minutes. If you’re stuffing your apples from the beginning, you can skip the cake pan entirely and just stuff your apples right away.
It’s cold out. Really cold. And windy, too. This is what I had in my house. This is what I came up with. There you have it. Have I mentioned how much I love my cookie scoop? I bloody love this thing.
Chocolate Chip Golden Raisin Oatmeal Cookies Recipe Ingredients
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup of quick-cook oats

Chocolate Chip Golden Raisin Oatmeal Cookies Recipe Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I soaked my golden raisins in some white wine I had in the fridge and microwaved them briefly to plump them up a bit. This is totally optional. You can also use regular raisins if you like. I just happened to have golden raisins laying around the house. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix the softened butter, white sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix just until blended. Add dry ingredients and oats. Mix. Then add the chocolate chips and golden raisins. Mix just until blended. Bake for about 8 to 12 minutes, or a little longer if you prefer a crispy cookie. Remember – you can always add time, but you can’t take it away, so start small!
