Welcome to my latest breakfast gluten free and dairy free recipe for Chocolate, Pistachio & Pear Porridge.

I had a very successful trip to Glasgow and got a lot of my Christmas shopping done plus a few little treats for myself!  I like to get as much of my Christmas shopping done in November as December just seems to be a whirlwind of parties, visiting, food prep and a few birthdays.

Porridge is a breakfast staple for me in the winter time – if you struggle with gluten free porridge oats then you make make any of my recipes using polenta as the base.  I have a number of polenta breakfast bowls in the breakfast section of my website that you can use for the basic recipe.  I had some pears left over from baking my pear bread so I used them up to make this porridge.  Pear and dark chocolate has been a favourite combination of mine since I had a pear and chocolate ice cream in Rome years ago – it was amazing.  I actually had rhubarb, strawberry and ginger porridge for breakfast this morning – I’ll share that recipe soon.
