These Creamy Steel Cut Oats with Roasted Pears are a warm and cozy way to start the day. Made without refined sugar, deliciously vegan and naturally gluten-free.
1cupsteel cut oats
pinchof Himalayan salt
1cupunsweetened almond milk
2medium pearssliced into 1/4-inch slices
2teaspoonspure maple syrup
additional almond milk for serving
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
In a large saucepan over medium high heat, toast the dry oats until fragrant while stirring frequently. This should take about 2 to 4 minutes. Add a pinch of salt, then the water and almond milk. Bring to a boil and immediately reduce the heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 30 to 35 minutes.
While the oats are cooking, place the pear slices on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the maple and sprinkle on the cinnamon. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Add the walnuts to the baking sheet for the last 2 minutes to toast.
To serve, scoop some oatmeal into a bowl. Top with a bit of almond milk, if desired, then add the pear slices and the walnuts.
Leftover oatmeal can be refrigerated for 4 to 6 days. It reheats perfectly in the microwave. Just add a bit of almond milk before reheating.If you need this to be gluten free, be sure your oats are labeled gluten free.
