  • 2 ripe pears, diced into bite size pieces
  • 1 and 1/4 cup rolled oats (can also use quick oats)
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like your oatmeal)
  • 2 cups milk of choice (I used whole milk, can also use non-dairy - also you may need a splash more milk if you like your oatmeal thinner)
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (divided)
  • pecans or walnuts for garnish (if desired)


  1. In a medium size pot, add the oats, milk, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Place the pot on medium heat and stir to combine.

  2. Let cook on low/medium heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until it’s thickened to your desired consistency.

  3. While it's cooking, quickly dice the pears and let 1 tbsp of butter melt in a pan on medium heat. Once butter has melted, add the pears and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and stir together. Let cook for 3 minutes or until softened.

  4. Once your desired consistency of oatmeal is reached, taste and adjust if needed. Add additional sweetener, more spice etc. Add a splash or two more milk if you prefer your oatmeal more thin. 

  5. Dish out into bowls, garnish with cooked pears, pecans, extra extra cinnamon and if desired, a splash more milk! Enjoy and eat while warm!

Recipe Notes

If you desire your oatmeal thinner, add more milk! Adjust the consistency/sweetness as needed.
