I just love the smell of cinnamon first thing on a chilly fall Sunday morning. When I woke up this morning I knew cinnamon had to somehow be involved in my breakfast.
Earlier this week I snacked on a pear with some almond butter at work. I loved the two flavors together and decided to recreate it this morning. Oats just made perfect sense in my mind to bring it all together!
When I was a kid I absolutely loved pears. Still do! Every time I eat them I'm suddenly 8 years old again hanging out in my parents' kitchen, the smell of a seasonal candle or incense in the air. They're just comforting. Perhaps my mom's routine candle burning is why I love the smell of cinnamon in the morning so much!
This really requires so little effort which is perfect for a lazy Sunday morning. It's just as easy to make a solo batch (as I did this morning because Anthony slept in much later than I did!) as it is to make a giant batch for family and friends to enjoy. Simply multiply the recipe according to how many people you are cooking for. Served with a fresh cup of coffee or tea it's absolutely perfect. Ahh...this morning was good.
