Rice porridge with cinnamon pear chia seed jam

Rice porridge with cinnamon pear chia seed jam. Gluten- and sugar free!

Hello friends!

I write you from a bus, on my way to great adventures! But you’ll have to stay tuned to know more about that..
Some days ago I was shopping at the market close to where we live and, as it always happen when one shops while hungry, I wanted to buy myself something good and sweet. I then decided I would buy a ready made rice porridge with some jam (there are several options). Well, instead of doing that, I just bought some milk and decided to make it myself, not only to satisfy a momentary craving, but also for the future breakfasts. With it I made this absolutely painless cinnamon pear jam with chia seeds. Even though it’s not necessary to boil the fruits for a chia seed jam, I decided to do it in order to smash them a bit and mix the pear and cinnamon flavors well.
