Tasty, easy, nutritious with delicious caramelised pear. The almond milk and coconut yoghurt make a great flavour combination. This healthy breakfast is lactose and refined sugar free and can be made gluten free. It is great served warm.
Delicious, warm and healthy start to the day
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
Serves: 1 large or 2 small bowls
Ingredients 3 weetbix (gluten free if required)
1/3 cup oats (rice flakes if gluten free, see Tips)
1 1/2 - 2 1/2 cups almond milk (depending on the size of the bowl)
4-5 tbsp coconut yoghurt (I use my easy coconut yoghurt)
1-2 tbsp linseed, sunflower seed and almond mix (LSA) (optional)
2 tbsp desiccated coconut
1/2 medium banana, mashed
1 pear, peeled, cored and cubed
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp water
Put the weetbix in a triangle in a microwave safe bowl. Pour the oats in the middle of the weetbix.
Placing the oats and weetbix in this way allows them to cook evenly
Cover the weetbix with almond milk (the amount depends on the size of the bowl. I usually use about 2 cups). Stand for 5 minutes for the milk to absorb slightly and then microwave for 2 minutes.
Add 1/2 mashed banana, LSA mix, desiccated coconut and stir to combine. Microwave for 1 minute. Add more milk if necessary for desired texture.
Mix well to combine the banana as it is a natural sweatener
While the weetbix and oats are cooking, caramelise the pear. Add water, pear, cinnamon and maple syrup to the saucepan and cook for 2-3 minutes until the pear is soft and caramelised.
Spoon the pear onto the centre of the weetbix and oats mixture. Add spoonfuls of coconut yoghurt and serve.
Make in one bowl and divide if you prefer two small bowls.
If using rice flakes, stand with the weetbix and almond milk for 10 minutes before microwaving for best results.
