Pear Porridge (with Oats, Chia Seeds and Coconut)

After making porridge for the first time last week in my Thermomix, I've been experimenting throughout the week with different fruits and combos. This is our favourite so far!

Pear Porridge

This is great for toddlers to self feed as porridge 'sticks' to the bowl and spoon, resulting in less spillage.

This can be pre-made and kept in the fridge/freezer and reheated in the microwave (with a little extra milk stirred through).

  1. Love this recipe with the natural sweetness of the pear. I added some cinnamon powder and LSA mix at the end too. Devoured by my 14 month old. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
