This creamy Pear and Walnut Porridge is the perfect warm breakfast, especially in autumn. Pears and walnuts then have their season and are particularly tasty when combined. If you like, you can also add a little honey to perfectly round off the flavour of your porridge. But since pears taste particularly sweet due to their low fruit acidity, honey is not really necessary. But of course everyone can decide for themselves. The low fruit acidity also ensures that the teeth are not attacked and that the fruit is also very digestible for acid-sensitive people and babies.

As with apples, most of the vitamins in pears are found under the skin. That is why I do not peel the pears for my porridges. For me, it also tastes best this way because the skin gives it a little texture. But if you prefer a smoother texture, you can of course remove the skin.

The walnuts in this porridge are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which have a positive effect on the health of the heart. They are also rich in zinc and thus strengthen our immune system, which is especially beneficial in the colder season. 🙂 The vitamin B6 they contain improves concentration and also prevents fatigue and nervousness.

Good to know!

Pears are rich in vitamins, such as vitamin C or folic acid, a vitamin of the B complex, which supports blood formation and helps to build up happiness hormones. The fruit is also a supplier of many important minerals such as zinc, phosphate, iron, potassium, copper, iodine and magnesium. Due to its high fibre content, it satiates quickly and aids digestion.

Ingredients

Porridge Base:

50g (½ cup) rolled oats or quick oats (The porridge will be creamier with quick oats and will have more texture with rolled oats. But you can also mix them.) 

120ml (½ cup) unsweetened oat milk, milk of choice or water

160g (1 cup) pears

1-2 tsp cinnamon

1 pinch salt

1 tsp rice syrup or maple syrup (optional)

Toppings:

pear slices or 2 tbsp pear pieces

1 tbsp (chopped) walnuts

½ tsp flax seeds

1 tsp honey or another sweetener (optional)

 

Instructions

1

Cut the pears in pieces and set them aside. 

2

Give the oats, the salt and the oat milk in a pot and let it simmer at medium heat until the consistency is thick. Add some liquid if it gets too thick and stir constantly so that the porridge doesn´t burn. 

Note: The salt gives your oat flakes a more intense flavour. So don´t leave it out. 🙂

3

Take a second pot and put the pear pieces into it. Add about 30 ml of water and the cinnamon and let the mixture simmer at medium heat until it becomes the consistency of a puree – a thick liquid. Also here, stir constantly so that the puree doesn´t burn. 

4

Then add the pear puree to your porridge and stir everything until you have a soft and creamy texture. Add a little bit of water or milk if the consistency is too thick. If the oatmeal is not sweet enough, add some rice syrup or other sweetener.

Note: You can also use honey if you have nothing else at home. However, please note that honey loses quality when heated over 40 degrees as it is very sensitive to heat. When heated, some ingredients, such as some enzymes, get lost. So add the honey only after heating.

5

Fill the porridge in a bowl and decorate it with pear pieces, flax seeds and walnuts. 

Enjoy your creamy Pear and Walnut Porridge!
