Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 to 2
Ingredients
  • ½ cup of steel cut oats (if you're GF make sure you look for ones certified so)
  • 1 cup of unsweetened and unflavoured almond milk or regular whole fat milk
  • ½ cup of unsweetened and unflavoured pumpkin puree
  • ½ teaspoon of melted coconut oil or unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • pinch of ground ginger
  • pinch of ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground all spice
  • a pinch of fine sea salt
  • sweetener of choice, amount to taste
Instructions
  1. The night before, mix the steel cut oats with the milk and store in a sealable or airtight container, then place it in the refrigerator.
  2. The next morning take out the oats from the refrigerator and set aside. Now heat a small pot and once hot add the coconut oil and allow to warm up. Next add the pumpkin puree and all of the spices, give the ingredients a good stir and cook until the puree thickens up a bit -- about 4 to 5 minutes. Now pour in the soaked oats and stir until well combined. Add the sweetener and again give the oatmeal a good stir. Taste it and see if the oats need more sweetener or spices. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
  3. Served topped with nuts and a few grains of pomegranate if desired.
Notes
*If you'd like, you may use pre-made pumpkin pie spice seasoning instead of using all of the different spices called for. But do taste and adjust the amounts to your liking.
