Perfect Pear Porridge

Makes 2 servings

1/2c steel cut oats (we use¬†Arrowhead Mills Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats or McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal)

1 large pear, or 2 smaller pears

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 TBSP pure maple syrup, or sweetener of choice

1TBSP coconut oil, optional

2 TBSP chopped walnuts

 

Bring water, per your oats package instructions, to a boil. In the meal time cut pear and remove steam and seeds and cube or dice. When water comes to a boil stir in oats. After a minute add the pears (save a few pear pieces, optional, for garnish which can be broiled if desired), cinnamon, and maple syrup, and cook per package instructions. With the gluten-free it takes a lot less time, with the McCann I usually do overnight quicker cooking method. Once oats are cooked per package instructions and consistency as desired, stir in coconut oil. Divide oats into two bowls and garnish with pears and chopped walnuts. Enjoy!
