Looking for a way to turn pears into something more … fun? These pear oat bars are a soft and sweet and a great way to fancy up our one and only fruity treat.
Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Grease a 7 x 11 inch pan and set aside.
Combine shortening or butter and brown sugar and mix with a hand mixer on medium speed until fully incorporated. Add flour and baking soda and mix well. Stir in the oats and the water by hand. Press half of batter into the greased pan and set aside the rest.
In another bowl mix together the pears and 1/4 cup sugar. Spread the pears over the first layer of batter in pan. Top with remaining oat batter. Bake for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Remove from oven and let cool. Cut into bars and serve.
