Makes 3 portions
Takes 15 minutes to make
1 1/2 Pear (sliced)
1/3 tsp Cinnamon 1 1/2 cups Oats (rolled)
3 cups Water
1/3 cup Pecans (roughly chopped, optional)
3 tbsps Almond Butter (optional)
Heat a small non-stick pan over medium heat. Once warm, add the pear and cinnamon.
Cook, stirring often until softened and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the pears and set aside. Meanwhile, add the oats and water to a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring often until gently boiling.
Reduce the heat and simmer until cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Add the oats to a bowl and top with pears. Add the pecans and almond butter, if using. Enjoy!
Leftovers: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. Reheat with a splash of water or oat milk or eat cold.
Nut-free? Use pumpkin seeds instead of pecans. Omit the almond butter or use tahini instead.
Need More Flavor? Add a splash of oat milk and/or vanilla. Cook the pear in coconut oil. Sweeten with a drizzle of maple syrup.
