These maple butter pears might have something to do with it. Pears, soaked in butter and maple syrup…mmmm.
Wait….why didn’t I make more of these? They would be great over a dish of homemade vanilla ice cream!
But I digress.
Back to the oatmeal.
You really couldn’t ask for a heartier fall breakfast than this. I love the rustic feel of steel-cut oats. They take a little longer to cook but they’re definitely worth the wait!
And then you top the oatmeal with these mouth-watering pears, make sure you spoon on lots of buttery maple sauce!
