Warm Oatmeal with Spiced Pears

2 pears
30ml lemon juice
60ml brown sugar
2,5ml ground cinnamon
30g butter, cubed

For the oatmeal:
250ml rolled oats
250ml water
250ml milk
a pinch of salt
1,2ml ground cinnamon
a handful (or two) of almonds

For the pears:
Preheat your oven to 180℃ and line a small baking tray with baking paper or aluminium foil.
Halve the pears and remove the core. (I use a melon scoop for this)
Place the pears, cut-side up, on the prepared baking tray and drizzle with the lemon juice.
Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon on the fruit and place a piece of cubed butter on each.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, flip them over and bake for another 10 minutes.

For the oatmeal:
Pour the oats, water, milk, salt and cinnamon into a saucepan and place on medium-high heat.
Bring to a simmer and cook for 5-6 minutes, while stirring often.

Spoon the porridge into 2 bowls and place 2 pear half on top of each bowl.
Drizzle the oatmeal with honey and a generous scattering of almonds and serve warm.
