Pear, Cinnamon & Walnut Porridge

This creamy pear, cinnamon & walnut porridge is the perfect winter breakfast! It takes just ten minutes or so to make and it’s full of flavour. I love baking the pear in thin slices with a little maple and cinnamon, and then throwing in the walnuts at the end so that they go nice and crunchy. I then add them bowl to a bowl of creamy almond milk oats and dig my spoon in!


Serves: 2

Difficulty: easy


1 ripe pear

100g of porridge oats, 2/3 cup

250ml almond milk, 1 cup

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

Handful of roasted walnuts, chopped


Preheat oven to 180c, fan.

Cut your pear into slices and place them on a baking tray with a tablespoon of maple syrup and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden, adding the walnuts right at the end to toast.

While your pear is baking in the oven make your porridge; place your oats, milk, a teaspoon of cinnamon and a tablespoon of maple syrup in a pan over a medium heat and cook for around 5-8 minutes until smooth and creamy.

Once your pears are cooked, place them on top of your porridge with the chopped walnuts and enjoy!
