If I was playing the host on Family Feud and I asked the contestants to “name a fall fruit” my guess is that the number one answer would be APPLES!! Of course there is a possibility of that strange uncle, who in retrospect should not have been asked to be on the team, who would shout PERSIMMON! And uh, I love persimmons, but come on uncle- apples are the darlings of fall fruit.

My guess is not many people would say pears. How about you, do you think of pears when you think of the fall? I have to admit I probably would have said apples myself. And that’s a big omission because pears are so wonderful in the fall. They are great with vanilla and ginger and maple… all warm and fuzzy fall flavors.

So, when Nielsen-Massey asked if I’d like to try out their new No Sugar Added Pure Vanilla Extract to make a fall recipe for busy back to school breakfasts, I knew I’d have to throw pears into the spotlight, since they are a natural complement to vanilla.

Pure vanilla is a classic for a reason. I didn’t know this but vanilla has more than 300 flavor compounds. The process Nielsen-Massey’s uses (cold extraction) gently draws out and preserves all that awesome vanilla flavor.

 

I ended up settling on a Vanilla Pear twist on Overnight Oats.

How to Make No Sugar Added High Protein Vanilla Roasted Pear Overnight Oats

  • First I peeled and cubed the pears, tossed them with butter and then roasted them until they were softened and starting to caramelize a little bit. When they came out of the oven I tossed them with the Nielsen-Massey No Sugar Added Pure Vanilla Extract.
  • Then I mixed up the overnight oats. It’s just a combination of milk (nut milk is fine) and oats.
  • From there, I did two variations, one is sugar free and high in protein the other is made with pure maple syrup. To make the sugar-free high-protein overnight oats recipe, just add vanilla protein powder sweetened with stevia into the oats and milk. I like whey protein, but if you prefer another source use that instead. If you avoid non-nutritive sweeteners or protein powder, then you can still make this recipe by simply using pure maple syrup instead of the protein powder.
  • Pour the oats mixture into jars, then top with the pears. Cover with lids refrigerate up to 5 days.
  • Before serving, top them with crunchy almonds for a nice texture contrast.
