Spiced Pear Oatmeal is a simple and healthy gluten free breakfast recipe! Sweet pears, cinnamon, and maple syrup combine to make the best warming porridge.


Units Scale
  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups milk
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 pear, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Add the water and almond milk to a pot and bring to a simmer. Add in the oats and a big pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the oats are creamy and have absorbed the liquid, about 7-10 minutes.
  2. Add in the pear, remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and cover for 1 minute to let the pear warm through. Scoop into bowls and add an extra drizzle of maple syrup before serving.


Milk: I used soy milk, but any milk you like would work. Almond, coconut, 2%, etc. If you're using a thinner milk, like almond milk or 1% milk, consider using more milk and less water to achieve a creamy oatmeal.
