Goodness breakfast with maple pears

Goodness breakfast

A bit of toasting the night before will give you a wholesome base for a quick and warming breakfast. Top with fruit, yoghurt, seeds or nuts to change things up.

40 mins
Goodness breakfast


  • 100g oats
  • 100g millet flakes
  • 100g barley flakes
  • 100g quinoa
  • 40g pumpkin seeds
  • 40g sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 800ml–1 litre almond milk

For the maple pears

  • 2 pears, cored and sliced
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup, plus extra to serve

To serve

  • handful of flaked almonds
  1. Before you start

    Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4.

  2. Mix the oats, flakes, quinoa and seeds in a bowl, then scatter onto a roasting tray and toast in the oven for 20 minutes. Check every 5 minutes and give them a shake to ensure they toast evenly. Once golden, cool them, then store in a jar until breakfast.

  3. To make your breakfast, put 1 large handful of toasted mix per person in a pan with 200ml almond milk and simmer on a low heat for 10 minutes until the grains are tender. Or, cook all the grains at once with 800ml almond milk and cook in the same way – add the extra 200ml of almond milk to loosen slightly, if you like.

  4. To make the pears

    Meanwhile, heat the pears and maple syrup in a separate pan over a medium heat for 5 minutes, until just warmed through. Serve your grains topped with warm pear, a drizzle of maple syrup and flaked almonds.
