Creamy Winter Oatmeal [Vegan]


Cooking Time




For the Oatmeal:

  • 3/4 cup quick oats (if you use rolled oats make sure to soak them overnight or use an additional cup of water, as the cooking takes longer
  • 1/8 buckwheat flakes
  • 1/4 cup puffed quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1 dried fig, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon nut meg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

For the Caramelized pears:

  • 1 medium pear, cut in halves and seeds removed
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Dash of cinnamon

For the Toppings:

  • Blueberries
  • Dried figs
  • Chia seeds
  • Cinnamon


  1. For the oatmeal, place all the ingredients onto a sauce pan and heat it up. Let it cook until all the liquids are soaked in and you have a creamy consistency.
  2. In the mean time, place a non-sticking pan medium heat and place the pear halves inside. Add the maple syrup and cinnamon and let cook for 2-3 minutes (or until caramelized).
  3. Put your ready oatmeal into a bowl, top with the pears and other desired toppings and enjoy while warm!
