So, my crew doesn’t really like oatmeal. I live with three texture-sensitive, picky eaters who prefer not to eat anything the least bit “mushy.” But believe me when I tell you this recipe is wonderful…if you like oatmeal. And if you’re not texture-sensitive. Or picky.

It is full of fall flavors like pears and maple syrup, and is a great addition to Thanksgiving Brunch. Plus, how fantastic to wake up to the smell of cinnamon and the knowledge that one of the dishes your serving is already ready. These gorgeous white pumpkin bowls are from Pier 1 and they are 20% off right now. Plus an additional 10% off by using the promotion code FALL10 at checkout.  #doubleprizes

1 cup uncooked steel cut oats

2 TBS Maple Syrup

1 1/2 TBS butter

1 tsp cinnamon

optional garnishes: chopped walnuts, golden raisins, additional maple syrup or butter


Add all ingredients except garnishes into a lined slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-7 hours. Serve hot in bowls and with chosen garnish.


**NOTE** If you or your crew are texture sensitive or picky, serve a fruit and yogurt parfait by layering granola, apples and pears and Greek yogurt in a clear trifle dish or in individual mason jars.
