Vegan, Low GI, Gluten Free
Prep 5 minutes including cooking time
40g (3/4 cup) Rolled Oats or Gluten Free oats
1 Ripe Pear, cored and diced (peel can remain on)
1/2 Cup Coconut Milk – I use Rude Health
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground ginger
1 – 1 1/2 tsp Turmeric (if you are not used to the taste start on half a teaspoon and build from there) Even better small thumb size piece of fresh Turmeric, peeled and grated
1 Heaped tsp Almond Butter
Put your oats, dry into a heavy based saucepan on a medium heat. Allow these to warm in the pan giving it a shake, this just helps release the oaty texture before adding the liquid.
Add your coconut milk and pear along with all the spices and give it a good stir. Slowly bring to the boil and then allow to simmer for up to 2 minutes.
Just towards the end add your dollop of Almond butter and combine.
Serve straight away.
