This warm bowl of cardamom pear oatmeal is the perfect cool weather breakfast. Cooked with pears, cinnamon, and cardamom this oatmeal is full of fall spices and incredibly comforting.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the oatmeal, almond milk, water, flax meal, half the chopped pears, vanilla, dry spices, salt, and maple syrup. Stir ingredients to combine and bring to a simmer.
Once the oatmeal mixture is bubbling, turn heat down to low. Cook oatmeal until thickened. Just before serving, add the lemon juice and season to taste, extra salt or maple syrup as preferred.
Serve oatmeal in a bowl and top with the reserved pear pieces, ground cinnamon, shredded coconut, a drizzle of pure maple syrup, and a spoonful of almond butter.
