Cinnamon Pear Oatmeal

Winter is here no doubt about it, and I am always looking for delicious ways to make breakfast a little more inspiring (and warm). It always helps me start the day off right AND  prevents making poor food choices through out the day (like say… scarfing a bag of chips at 2pm because I’m so HANGRY… who’s with me?!). This is a little like dessert for breakfast which makes it really awesome, but isn’t super jam packed with tons of sugar – a little is always ok in my books!

This also makes an excellent lunch if you’re planning an outdoor adventure in the afternoon and what something that’s going to stick!

You’re looking at about 2 decent sized servings, or 4 smaller serving if you want to serve something else along side.
