Wonderful combination of flavors to start your day! This was so easy and so good plus it was very filling. This is a great way to perk up regular morning oatmeal. Since I didn't have fresh raspberries on hand I topped it off with a dollup of fat free greek vanilla yogurt, additional toatsted almonds and dried cranberries. I really didn't need the brown sugar as it was sweet enough as is.

This was pretty good. My pears were not packed in syrup so mine wasn't as sweet as I would like. I added a spoonful of Truvia. I think I would not add the almonds if I were to make it again-just personal preference, though they did add a pleasant crunch. Super quick and easy and very filling; it gave me tons of energy. I was not hungry for over 6 hours! I found it was even good after many hours in the fridge, so I plan on reheating it for breakfast tomorrow. I used blackberries because I did not have raspberries, and it is great with Greek vanilla yogurt on top. This was a healthy way for me to use up a lonely can of pears. The directions were perfect.

Very good and healthy. Don't need much brown sugar because the cinnamon and vanilla and sweetness of the pears (I used the light syrup kind) are sweet enough for me.
