Steel Cut Oats With Pears (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Anti-Inflammatory)

Serves 4

Oatmeal with pear or apple offers both soluble and insoluble fibre (2 grams each for 1/2 cup uncooked). Insoluble adds bulk and helps with "movement" and soluble dissolves in water to form a gel-like substance.

Oatmeal in particular contains large amounts of beta-glucan ... a type of soluble fibre connected with reduced LDL cholesterol, reduced blood sugar and insulin response, increased feelings of fullness and a healthy gut flora.

Steel cut oats are a better option than rolled oats because they are less processed. Therefore, they contain more fibre and nutrition than other oat varieties.


  • 1 cup steel cut oats, gluten-free

  • dash salt

  • 2 cups water

  • 2 cups almond milk, unsweetened

  • 2 medium pears, sliced

  • 4 tsp maple syrup

  • 4 dashes cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


  • Toast oats by placing them in a large saucepan over medium-high heat for 2-4 minutes. Make sure to stir them frequently to prevent burning.

  • Add salt, water, and almond milk to the saucepan of toasted oats.

  • Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 20-30 minutes, or until desired tenderness is reached.

  • Divide into four bowls and top with pears, walnuts, maple syrup, and cinnamon.

  • Serve & enjoy!

Tip: If you want to roast your pears first, place them in a baking dish at 375F for about 10 minutes while you’re cooking the oats.
