Introduction

This one tastes like fall in a bowl! If you donít have maple extract, just use maple syrup as your sweetener to add that maple flavor. The maple really makes you think of the autumn leaves, the pear adds a little tart and a little sweet, and the walnuts add just the right amount of crunch. This one tastes like fall in a bowl!

Ingredients

    **This recipe uses a smaller slow cooker, 1 1/2 to 2 quarts

    1/2 cup (40g) steel-cut oats
    2 cups (500ml) unsweetened coconut milk (you can use any non-dairy milk or even water instead)
    1 pear, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon maple extract
    sweetener of choice, to taste (I used 1 packet Nu Stevia)

    Toppings:
    1/4 cup (30g) walnuts, chopped
    fresh grated nutmeg
    drizzle of maple syrup (optional)

Directions

The night before: Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean-up later. Add all the ingredients except the sweetener and toppings. Cook on low overnight (7 to 9 hours).

In the morning: Stir your oatmeal well and add sweetener. It may seem watery at the top, but if stirred, it should be a more uniform consistency. Top with walnuts and a sprinkle of fresh grated nutmeg.

Serving Size:†Makes 2-3 servings

    You specify non-dairy milk. Could that be used? I like milk and use it rather than avoid it. - 10/6/14

    You can use any kind of milk you'd like! I specify non-dairy in this recipe so vegans can enjoy it, too.

    Made this as soon as I saw this recipe. This morning my husband asked, "What do you call this?"
    When I told him he said,"Well, you can make it again!"
    Next time I will add just a little more liquid and perhaps some craisins which we always have in oats.
    Thanks for the recipe!

  • I'm gonna try this in my Instant Pot - just set it to turn itself on in a few hours, let it rip (using the oats or porridge cycle, and it automatically goes on a low "keep warm" cycle for like 10-12 hours - enough time to roll out of bed & have a hot breakfast! - 10/6/19
