Of all the instant oatmeal flavors, I think maple is one of my favorites. This could be because maple smells like warmth and happiness, but I’m not totally sure. What I do know, is that this maple porridge is ahhhhmazing with fresh pears, walnuts, and a drizzle of maple syrup. Add a little butter while it’s hot and you’ve got breakfast heaven! It’s a super simple recipe, so it’s definitely worth trying. Hopefully it adds a little bit of warmth and sweetness to the chilly mornings ahead!
