Quick and delicious oats with caramelised pears

I have to admit this quick and delicious oats with caramelised pears recipe wasn’t planned to be on the blog. Because everyone knows how to cook oats, right? I cooked this quick oatmeal dish for lunch this week. Why? Because I was short of time, didn’t have much in the fridge, and felt like I need something warm and comforting. So, I cooked oats. I added some pears, spices, and cashew nuts to spice things up. To my big surprise, it turned out to be simply amazing and it was clear that I have to share this recipe with you guys. It is so, so good!
