Happy September! We're officially just a few weeks away from Fall and my breakfast this morning represented the many reasons I love the season. Instead of my typical oatmeal with berries, I switched it up with some fresh, seasonal pear slices and cinnamon. An exquisite combo I might add and just what I needed to get me going this Wednesday morning!
*Cooks note-this pears very nicely with a tall nonfat PUMPKIN SPICE latte! Yep, they're back!!
Oatmeal with Pears and Cinnamon
1/2 cup oats (not instant)
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup light vanilla soymillk
1/2 sliced pear
1 tbsp sliced almonds
2 tsp agave nectar (optional)
Heat water over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil. Add oatmeal and cook about 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cooked through. Add soymilk, sliced pear, almonds and sprinkle with cinnamon. For a bit of added sweetness, add 2 tsp agave nectar. Enjoy!
