Pear and Almond Butter Porridge

Great alternative to the classic banana porridge and mixing things a but up. This pear and almond butter porridge is just as sweet and filling. Pears are in the season, so give it a go!

This recipe is super easy, all you need is oats, pear, almond butter and if you want like me, also hemp seeds that I added for extra crunchiness, protein and nutrients. It is plant-based and can be gluten free. I used gluten-free oats, but feel free to use normal ones, it us completely up to you and it will be equally delicious 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of oats
  • 1 cup of almond milk/water
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 ripe pear
  • 1tbsp of almond butter
  • optional: hemp seeds

Method:

  1. Cut the pear in half and mash one half by fork, slice the second half into pieces.
  2. Cook the oats in a pan with the milk or water, mix in the pear and cinnamon. The pear gives it a nice sweet flavour. Cook until it has thicker consistency (gluten free oats will be done faster), for about 5min, normal oats up to 10 minutes.
  3. Serve with slices of the remaining half of pear, add the almond butter and optinal hempseeds. 
  4. Enjoy!

Why we like it:

  • Easy and filling
  • Oats are incredibly nutritious and contain great amount of fiber
  • Great to take while on the go too, in a portable jar.
  • Full of healthy fats, protein and slow carbs.
