Here is one of my favorite breakfasts during the winter. It’s harder to find good fresh fruit in the dead of winter, but I can usually always find good pears. I love the flavor of pears and they work great in oatmeal paired with the flavors of vanilla and ginger. This is a warm, filling, and healthy breakfast guaranteed to start your day off right.
Gingered Pear Oatmeal
1/2 c. quick cooking oats
1 c. water
1/3 c. non-dairy milk
1 pear, diced
1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed (can use chia)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
sweetener of choice, I use 1 tsp. erythritol or 8 drops stevia
Combine the oats and water in a bowl and microwave for about 2 minutes. Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir till completely mixed. I like to add an extra splash of non-dairy milk on top after I stir it. Then, microwave about another 1 min. 45 sec. and enjoy!
