Yum Alert: Pear Maple OatmealBy Olga • Jan 16th, 2012 • Category: Food, FOOD AND TRAVEL, Recipes
Breakfast is the most important meal of my day and it should be the most important meal of your day, too. Breakfast jumps starts you metabolism, which, in turn, leads to burning more calories. It’s a win all around. Start your day with this awesome oatmeal recipe from From A Little Yellow Kitchen.
4 cups of water
4 cups of soy milk (or another milk)
4 ½ cups of rolled-oats
1 ½ Tbsp wheat germ (optional)
2 Tbsp flax seeds (optional)
1 tsp pumpkin spice
2 tsp cinnamon
2-3 Tbsp Grade B pure maple syrup
2 medium pears, cored and diced
1/2 -3/4 cup golden raisins, roughly chopped
Add water, soy milk, oats, flax seed, and wheat germ, to a large sauce pan. Heat on medium high until it comes to a boil, then turn heat to low. Add pumpkin spice, cinnamon, maple syrup, pears and golden raisins to the oatmeal and mix in. Cover and let simmer on low for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally so that the bottom doesn’t burn. Enjoy with a splash of milk and a dash of cinnamon.
