Quick and Easy Pear Nutmeal

Personally, I could eat meat (or eggs) and veggies everyday for breakfast and be happy.  Not so much for the family.  Sometimes I make them pancakes or muffins, but this is a nice once-in-awhile breakfast reminiscent of oatmeal from breakfasts past.  I'm not the first person to come up with "nutmeal", but this is my take (see Fauxtmeal, No-atmeal, and Nutty Hot Cereal [where I adapted my recipe] for other variations).  Fast and easy, you can whip this up in no time for a quick and hearty breakfast.  Makes about 2 cups; recipe can easily be multiplied (or reduced).

  • 1 cup of nuts (I like macadamia and pecans, but about any nuts you have on hand will work)
  • 1 1/2 pears, cut into large chunks (almost any seasonal fruit will work here)
  • 2 eggs (preferably from pastured chickens)
  • 1 cup coconut milk (I use full-fat canned coconut milk, make sure to get the kind without the "gunk")
  • 1 Tbs cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and mix until desired consistency is reached.
  2. Pour into a saucepan and heat over medium heat until hot and bubbly.
  3. Serve and enjoy.
