Breakfast: Pear Oats with Walnuts and Pineapple juice
1- Breakfast: Pear Oats
Rolled oats are one of the fastest cooking foods with the pressure cooker. For this recipe, you mix everything in a bowl, which sets in the steamer rack in the cooker. The oats cook in almond milk, sugar, and just a tablespoon of coconut oil. Fresh pears will soften beautifully in there, as well, and you finish it off with cinnamon and walnuts.
- 2 cups almond milk
- 2 cups peeled and cut pears
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Dash of cinnamon
- Mix everything except the walnuts and cinnamon in an oven-safe bowl that you know fits in the pressure cooker.
- Pour 1 cup of water into the pressure cooker and lower in steamer rack.
- Put the bowl on top and lock the lid.
- Select “manual,” and then high pressure for 6 minutes.
- When time is up, quick-release the pressure.
- Carefully remove the bowl, divide into 4 servings, and season with salt and cinnamon.

2- Pineapple juice
How about some sunshine in a glass to get you up in the morning? Pineapple is certainly a great flavor to get you energized first thing and is great stomach settler if it’s been a long night.
