Honey Roast Pear

  • 1 ripe pear
  • 1 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • small knob butter or coconut oil
  • squeeze of lemon juice about ½ tsp
  • pinch ground cardamom or cinnamon


  • 45 g (½ cup) porridge oats
  • 250 ml (1 cup) almond milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 120 ml (½ cup) water
  • tsp vanilla bean paste

To Serve

  • Extra almond milk as needed
  • honey
  • chopped nuts

  • Heat the oven to 190C/375F/gas mark 5. Halve and core the pear and place cut side up in a small roasting dish, drizzle with the honey and lemon juice and dot with the butter, sprinkle over a little cardamom or cinnamon. Roast for about 20 minutes until softened, basting occasionally with the roasting juice.
  • Meanwhile, mix the oats, milk, water and vanilla paste in a saucepan; cook over a low heat for about 8-10 minutes, stirring often, until the coats are creamy and soft and the porridge has thickened. Add a little extra milk if needed to thin.
  • Serve the porridge topped with the roasted pear and a little of the roasting syrup, a drizzle of honey, a handful of chopped nuts and a pinch of cinnamon.
