  • cup gluten free oats
  • 1 tsp ground ginger (I used Steenbergs)
  • 1 tsp desiccated coconut (unsulphured)
  • 1 small pear, cored and diced
  • cup milk of your choice (plant milk or full fat dairy if tolerated)
  • 1 large egg, beaten

To serve

  • 1 tbsp pecan butter (I used Meridian Foods)
  • 1 tbsp pear puree (it's easy to make your own but you can also buy it. I like Biona Organic)
  • 1 tsp desiccated coconut (unsulphured)
  • 1 tbsp pecans, roughly chopped


  • Place the oats, ginger, coconut, pear and milk in a small saucepan and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer over a low heat and cook until the oats begin to thicken, about 2 minutes.
  • Slowly add the beaten egg, stirring continuously and cook for a further 3 minutes (it's important to keep stirring) until the porridge is thick and creamy.
  • Pour into a bowl and top with the pecan butter, pear puree, coconut and pecans.


To make 1/2 cup pear puree, simply peel, core and chop two pears into chunks, place in a small saucepan with 2 tbsp water and simmer until soft (about 5 minutes). Then either blend or mash to a pureed consistency. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.
