If you have dietary restrictions -- whether due to food allergies or a lifestyle choice -- this vegan oatmeal is also gluten-free. A hearty morning meal, this recipe features baked pear, chocolate and hazelnut. Created by Izy Hossak at the food blog Topped With Cinnamon, the porridge is packed with vitamin D. This makes it ideal during this time of year when sunlight is in shorter and shorter supply.

To recreate this breakfast at home, you will need yummy ingredients including pinhead oats, quinoa, chia seeds, water, salt, coconut sugar or a mashed date, chopped dark chocolate, sliced pear and chopped hazelnuts. For a more dessert-y version of this vegan oatmeal, you could add a dollop of Nutella on top.
