Move over boring oats! Time to spice things up! These quick and delicious oats with caramelised pears will comfort your soul and nourish your body.
1 cup of gluten-free oatmeal
1 cup of your favourite milk. I used a mix of coconut and almond milk from Nutty Bruce
1 cup of water
1/2 pear diced in little cubes
1/2 pear thinly sliced
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
a pinch of nutmeg
1 tbsp cashew nuts, roughly chopped (you can substitute with almonds, walnuts or any other nuts you prefer)
1 tsp coconut oil or grass-fed butter
1/2 tsp raw honey
pinch of salt
In a medium-sized saucepan, combine oatmeal, milk, water, diced pears, maple syrup, salt, and spices and bring to simmer.
Simmer for 3-4 minutes until oats are nice and creamy.
Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil or butter in a small frying pan. Add 1/2 spoon of honey and add the sliced pears to the pan. Fry the pears for a couple of minutes until the pears have caramelised and look golden. Take them out and place them on a plate.
Put your oats in a bowl, add pears and nuts and enjoy!
If your oats start to thicken too much while you cook them, simply add a splash of water or milk.
