This was nice, the toasting of the oats is a different step I haven't used before, I used canned pears & sultanas & served with yoghurt for a nice filling brekky!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Note: I also tested this recipe using canned pears in their own juice and think canned pears would be a suitable substitute for fresh.
  2. In a cast iron skillet on medium-high (depends on your range)heat dry roast the oatmeal and cinnamon for approximately 4-5 mintes. DO NOT burn. Remove pan from heat.
  3. In a saucepan combine the pear nectar with 3/4 cup water. Cook slowly over medium heat just until bubbles appear around the edges. DO NOT boil.
  4. Add the toasted oats, the grated pear, and salt. Cook mixture stirring constantly, until the oats are tender; about 10-12 minutes.
  5. Stir in the raisins just before serving.
  6. Top each serving with a dollop of yogurt.
