Peanut butter and pear porridge

Tinned fruit is 100% fine sometimes, when you buy it in fruit juice or water. It’s handy to keep in the cupboard, like the pears I used here or some cherries, peaches or plums. Fresh pears are also great, especially when eaten with their skin, where a lot of the nutrients hang out. This porridge bowl combines the freshness pears with the slight saltiness of peanut butter and a bit of sweetness from honey and of course creamy oats cooked with whole milk. Add a bit of crunch with a few chopped nuts and you have a bowl of heaven that will keep you feeling satisfied til lunch.


  • 40-60g porridge oats (Nuush members check your own portions list)
  • Enough whole milk to make a creamy porridge
  • A couple of squeezes of clear honey
  • 1 teaspoon of crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons of ground flax
  • A small tin of pear quarters or a fresh juicy pear, quartered.
  • A few chopped nuts, I used almonds but it’s good to vary

Cook the oats, milk and a bit of honey until creamy, about 4-5 mins. 

Heat the peanut butter with another small squeeze of honey – mix til heated through.

Tip the porridge into a nice bowl, add the pears then spoon the peanut butter mix alongside, spoon the flax alongside in a small strip, scatter the chopped nuts and finish with another tiny squeeze of honey.

Nutrition Info


Peanuts are also a rich source of manganese which also helps with having fantastic bones and skin as well as helping to control blood sugar. And in these days of diabetes epidemics that’s a huge bonus.

Nuts for the win!


Pears are rich in a flavonol called epicatechin. Flavonols are compounds found in plants that infer protective benefits to the plant, and to us when we eat them. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Even better when you eat the skins where much of the flavonols are found.

Good honest nutrition

Walnuts and pears you plant for your heirs.
