Cinnamon-Pear Breakfast Crumble

I threw this together one winter and haven't stopped making it since.  As long as I'm able to can pears in the fall, we'll eat this in the winter!  It's easy to throw together with a sleep-fogged brain first thing in the morning and hot enough to warm your bones.

-1 quart pear halves, arranged rounded-side up in a 8x8 square dish, with some of the juice

-sprinkle with 1/4 cup packed brown sugar and 1 and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Mix together:
 4 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup real maple syrup
2 large eggs
1/4 cup canola oil
and another
1 and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Spoon over the pears and  bake in a 350-degree oven until heated through and oatmeal mixture is crisp and golden brown on top.

Best eaten warm with a cup of hot tea while watching the snow fall out the kitchen window.
