This morning I woke up knowing I had a ton of work to be done, so I contemplated between having a fast breakfast or a stovetop bowl of oats. What to do?
I finally decided on the oats...I find that I function better throughout the day when I have a breakfast that carries me through, and oatmeal has always been perfect for that. :) Definitely worth the extra few minutes it takes to heat it up and chop the fruits.
I increased the cooking time from 8-10 minutes to make it thicker and softer, and ended up liking this Arrowhead Mills brand much better then the first time I made it. I also added in a heated pear, lots of cinnamon, and a handful of raisins when the oats were half way done cooking.
At the very end, I added on the walnuts and a drizzling of maple syrup. This bowl was so amazingly delicious; I think I'll be having pear spice oatmeal more often. :D I think the secret is having a pear thats super sweet and juicy...
Off to get some work done...looks like a sunny day over here, and hopefully it is for all of you as well!! :)
