Recipe

Serves 4

1 cup steel cut oats, gluten-free

dash salt

2 cups water

2 cups almond milk, unsweetened

2 medium pears, sliced

4 tsp maple syrup

4 dashes cinnamon

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Instructions

  • Toast oats by placing them in a large saucepan over medium-high heat for 2-4 minutes. Make sure to stir them frequently to prevent burning.

  • Add salt, water, and almond milk to the saucepan of toasted oats.

  • Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 20-30 minutes, or until desired tenderness is reached.

  • Divide into four bowls and top with pears, walnuts, maple syrup, and cinnamon.

Serve & enjoy!

Tip: If you want to roast your pears first, place them in a baking dish at 375F for about 10 minutes while you’re cooking the oats.
