Spiced with ground ginger for a warming heat, cinnamon for sweetness and lucuma for a caramel-like softness, this bowl of oats is next-level Winter comfort food.

Ingredients (serves 1)

1 pear, grated
60g oats
½ tsp each: ground ginger, cinnamon
1 tsp lucuma, optional, I like this one
4 pitted dates, chopped
250ml almond milk
To serve: extra pear slices, almond yoghurt, almond butter, goji berries, granola


Place all the ingredients for the porridge in a small saucepan and allow to simmer over a low heat for about 5 minutes or until thick and creamy. Add a splash more milk if it’s beginning to thicken too quickly.
Pour into a bowl and top with your desired toppings and enjoy warm.
