I know there is a line drawn for gluten intolerance folks to either consume or not consume oats. Our family does eat them as long as I get organic oats. The rumor is if they are organic they "should" not be contaminated by wheat. Since we are not celiac we take the chance.
This morning I made baked pears as I had 5 of them that were on the hard side.
In a skillet cook over medium heat about 6 minutes:
1/2 cup honey
the juice of 2 mandarin oranges
pinch of salt
stick of cinnamon
1 vanilla bean seeded
When it thickens add 5 peeled, cored and sliced pears. Cook until thicker and soft about 10 minutes. Take out cinnamon stick and transfer to an oven safe dish. Top with:
3/4 cup oats
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Drizzle 2 tbsp of melted butter over the top and bake at 350 until bubbly.
Since this was breakfast and not dessert I served it with a couple fresh scrambled eggs in butter. If this was dessert you could top it with ice cream or fresh yogurt.
