Pear Almond 8-Grain Cereal in a Rice Cooker

This has become one of my favorite weekend breakfasts. The 8-Grain cereal has a much nicer texture than oatmeal. It is easy to make and tastes great. You throw everything into the rice cooker and then sit on the couch drinking coffee while you wait.

Hot Cereal:
3/4 cup Bob's Red Mill 8 Grain Hot Cereal
1 cup vanilla soy milk
1 1/4 cup water
1 ripe pear, peeled and chopped
2 Tbs slivered almonds

2 Tbs light brown sugar (or to taste)
1 Tbs maple syrup (or to taste)

Place all the Hot Cereal ingredients into the rice cooker and cook according to your rice cooker's instructions for "porridge" (I use the porridge setting on my rice cooker).
