Creamy coconut oatmeal with spiced pears

Creamy coconut oatmeal with spiced pears

Delicious creamy oatmeal with coconut milk, seasoned with aromatic spices (cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, star anise and vanilla) with sweet, tender and syrupy pears on top. This oatmeal is really scrumptious, you don’t have to take my word for it, just try it yourself! This is one of our favorite breakfasts. Give it a try!

The pears should be just a little hard, they can’t be too hard, so it doesn’t take too long to soften them, and can’t be also too ripe – they would fall apart too quickly.

Ingredients

pears:

  • 4 large pears 800g / 1.8 lbs
  • 1.5 tablespoons xylitol or sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • a large pinch cardamom
  • 1 clove
  • ½ star anise optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

oatmeal:

  • 1 cup rolled oats about 90g / 3.2 oz, I used fine-sized rolled oats
  • 1 can coconut milk 400 ml / 14 oz
  • ½ cup cow milk / vegetable milk / water 120 ml
  • pinch of salt
  • 1.5 tablespoons xylitol or sugar
  • a large pinch cardamom
  • 1 clove
  • ½ star anise optional
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1.5 teaspoons lemon juice

to serve: 1 tablespoon shredded coconut

    Instructions

    pears:

    • Peel, core and quarter the pears, cut the quarters into cubes, add to a medium pot.
    • Combine with the xylitol / sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, star anise, vanilla and salt.
    • Cook over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring, until the pears are very tender, but still in pieces and a thick syrup forms at the bottom of the pot.

    oatmeal:

    • Add the oats, milk, sweetener and other spices to a medium pot (everything from the list except from the lemon juice), mix thoroughly together.
    • Cook over low heat for about 3 minutes (for fine rolled oats) or about 10 minutes (regular size rolled oats) until soft and creamz. The oatmeal will be still a bit too runny but it will thicken considerably upon cooling.
    • Take two heaped tablespoons of the spiced pears and transfer to a plate, mash well with a fork, add
    • to the oatmeal and stir in (this step is optional, but improves the taste!).
    • Season to taste with lemon juice (it should be only slightly noticeable).

    serve:

    • Pour the oatmeal into bowls, pour spiced pears on top, sprinkle with shredded coconut.
    • Take out cloves and star anise before serving.
    • The oatmeal can be served immediately or you can store it in the fridge, on the next day it will be also very good.
    • Bon Appetit!
