Spiced Pear & Peanut Butter Oatmeal! (GF, Vegan)

I have a big fat crush on oatmeal.

It is probably one of my favorite comfort foods! It is so incredibly versatile and so incredibly healthy! Now, I know there are a lot of paleo people out there who would disagree…and that is FINE!

I was paleo for a short while and didn’t eat oatmeal at all. It DID NOT work for my body. Cutting out grains actually made me gain weight and I was bloated all the time. When I started incorporating a small amount of grains back into my diet, the weight creeped off and I am seriously NEVER bloated now unless it’s that special time of the month.

I say this a lot but I think it is important to find what works best for YOUR body. Maybe you can’t eat oatmeal because it hurts your stomach and makes your skin breakout…in that case…this recipe is not for you, I’m sorry!

For those of you are equally oatmeal-obsessed than you are in for a real treat! This oatmeal is packed with the good stuff like chia seeds, cacao nibs, spiced pears, and peanut butter!

I hope you enjoy ❤

Spiced Pear & Peanut Butter Oatmeal GF, Vegan {Serves 1}

Oatmeal – 

  • 1/2 oats (I used quick oats!)
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • pinch of sea salt
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 C milk of choice (I used almond milk!)
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cacao nibs
  • 1 T organic, creamy peanut butter

Spiced Pear – 

  • 1/2 tsp ghee (or coconut oil!)
  • 1 organic pear
  • dash of nutmeg
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

Combine oats, chia seeds, & almond milk in a sauce pan over medium-heat. Once oatmeal starts to bubble, stir in sea salt, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Stir continuously so the oatmeal doesn’t stick. Reduce to low heat. Dice pear into bite-sized pieces. Melt 1/2 tsp ghee on a pan. Add pears. Add nutmeg, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Continue “frying” until pears are nice and cooked through. Remove oatmeal and pears from heat. Add to your favorite bowl. Top with cacao nibs and peanut butter.

(and if you are like me…take an obscene amount of  picture of it 😉 )
