Pear and Hazelnut Cinnamon Oatmeal


One thing being gluten free has done for me more than anything else, is expanded my breakfast horizons. I have tried many different breakfast options, rather than just having cereal every day……although it has made me miss it even more! I have made the Oh She Glows Peanut Butter Morning Oatmeal mutiple times, and I genuinely enjoy it…..maybe even enough to chose it over cereal. However, I decided that I should try to adapt it into my own recipe.

I had also been swooning over Peachy Palates Pear and Hazelnut pancakes and had that flavor combination in my head. I therefore created this pear and hazelnut cinnamon oatmeal, and topped it with my homemade almond butter from a few days prior! I loved the combination of flavors, and it was unlike any other breakfast I have had. Kept me full for a very long time too!


  • The 26g protein and 18g fiber in this breakfast makes it a well rounded, balanced meal that will curb your hunger, and provide you with a whole host of nutrients to help you stay healthy
  • Pears are not only high in Vitamins C and K, but they contain lots of other nutrients as antioxidants to prevent cell damage. They also are considered one of the only hypoallergenic fruits as they are safe for almost everyone!
  • Oats bring lots of fiber and protein as they make this a stick to your ribs breakfast that will keep you full till lunch (if not beyond)
  • Hazelnuts have a high concentration of oleic fats, good fats that lower your HDL cholesterol and increase your LDL, while reducing blood pressure, and being one of the best sources of Vitamin E for reducing free radical damage
  • Almond butter is made from pure almonds, which are known to reduce the risk of heart disease, and maintain a healthy weight

Pear and Hazelnut Cinnamon Oatmeal
Serves 1
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
1 pear, cut into small chunks
1 tsp butter
½ tbsp almond butter
1/2 cup (55g) rolled oats
1 tsp chia
1 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 cup (15g) hazelnuts, broken into halves
For topping: I added another ½ tbsp almond butter, but you could also add syrup, or additional hazelnuts
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat. Add the pear, and stir regularly.
Stir in the almond butter, oats, milk, chia, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Stir to distribute evenly.
Turn the temperature down to low, and allow the oats to soak in the liquids and thicken. It will take around 10 minutes. Make sure you stir regularly.
Stir in the hazelnuts, and add toppings.
