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.

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.
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.
