Coffee, ten extra minutes of sleep, and this oatmeal that tastes like dessert and I am one happy girl.  It doesn't take much, but we all know how hard it can be some mornings. Luckily, this healthy fall inspired cinnamon and pear oatmeal can be made on the stove top or in the microwave so you can make it work for almost any morning.  Plus it tastes like dessert. Kind of like an apple crisp - full of cinnamon and oats and maple syrup.  Yum.  And if you want to make things extra yummy, add a touch of butter when cooking the pears. This recipe will also work in larger batches when cooking on the stove-top and you can use pears, apples, or stone fruit.

1

Stove top option: Add the pear, water, and cinnamon to a small pot. Bring to a simmer and let cook for 4-6 minutes, stirring a few times, until the pears begin to become tender. (You can cook longer if you prefer the pears to break down more.) Then add the oats, milk, and maple syrup. Bring back to a simmer and cook for 5-7 minutes until oats are tender. Make sure to stir a few times throughout cooking so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot and burn.

2

Microwave option: Add the pear, water, and cinnamon to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 2-3 minutes until the pears are tender. (You can cook longer if you prefer the pears to break down more.) Stir in the oats, maple syrup, and milk. Microwave for 1.5 minutes. Stir and microwave for another 1-1.5 minutes or until tender.

It doesn’t specify but I assume due to the short cook time, these are quick oats?

Actually whole rolled oats will work! They only take 2-3 minutes in most microwaves. If you prefer quick cooking oats, you may want to cut the cooking time down to 1.5-2 minutes.

This has become a regular rotation in my weekday morning. I make the first step of the microwave version the night before and then refrigerate overnight and take it with me in the morning. Finish it in the microwave at work for a healthy, tasty, warm, breakfast.

How is this 5 points?? When the nutritional info provided is run through the calculator on WW, it comes out as 10. Please explain.

When you enter the nutritional info it doesn't pull the pear out as a fruit and count it as 0p+. However, if you put it in the recipe builder it does come up as 5p+.

I love this recipe! It was super easy to make and I ended up using chocolate soymilk (because that's what I had in the fridge) so it ended up being a chocolatey treat:)
