Slow Cooker Maple Pear Walnut Cake Oatmeal

Maple Pear Oatlmeal

This one is a comforting bowl of oatmeal. If you don’t 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 is soy-free and gluten-free. This recipe uses a smaller slow cooker (1 1/2 to 2 quarts). more→

You can always add more before serving. This recipe uses a smaller slow cooker that’s 1 1/2 to 2 quarts. more→

The recipe is purposely proportioned to produce a thick porridge that can handle a generous amount of soy milk. If a thinner cereal is preferred, add additional freshly boiled water at the end as needed.   more→
