Fruit-sweetened oatmeal with crispy almonds and aromatic cinnamon is the best, healthy way to start your day.

Ingredients

1 can (15.25oz.) Del Monte® Sliced Pears in Heavy Syrup
[or 1 can (15 oz.) Del Monte® Lite Sliced Pears]

2¾ cups water

2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats

¼ cup almonds, slivered, toasted

½ tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 cup Fresh raspberries


Optional Toppings:

  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • brown sugar

 

Directions
  1. Drain pears, reserving syrup. Chop pears; set aside. Combine water, reserved syrup and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Stir in oats; reduce heat. Cook, uncovered, 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat.
  2. Stir in almonds, cinnamon and vanilla. Cover and let stand 2 to 3 minutes to reach desired consistency.
  3. Top each serving with chopped pears and raspberries. Sprinkle with brown sugar, if desired.


NOTE: To toast almonds, preheat oven to 350°F. Place 1/4 cup slivered almonds in a shallow baking pan. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring once.
