Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Tis the season…for pumpkin!  Don’t worry — as a fit woman for life, you don’t have to give up the indulgence of comfort food at its best.  On these cold Fall mornings nothing comforts and warms you up like a bowl of oatmeal.  This oatmeal is made over the stovetop, and canned pumpkin along with some warming spices makes it truly suitable for the season.

As for the milk — if you tolerate dairy, a good source that’s grassfed would be optimal.  If you opt for going a coconut milk route — you can absolutely do so, but you might want to dilute it with some water to get the consistency right.

Let’s talk sweetener — you absolutely don’t need any.  This oatmeal is hearty, and flavorful all on its own.  If you do; however, want that extra indulgence a teaspoon or so of raw honey would be a terrific choice.  Toppings?  Go for whatever you desire!  Any variety of chopped nuts would do, shredded coconut, or even a sprinkle of raisins would be great.  Enjoy!

 

Serves: 1

Total Time:  15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup grassfed milk (if using coconut milk do 1/2 water)
  • 1/2 cup organic gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree (check your label here!)
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch of salt
  • desired toppings — extra milk, cinnamon, nuts, etc.

Process

  1. Pour the milk in a saucepan, and bring it to a boil.
  2. Once it’s boiling, add in your oats and stir.  Reduce the heat to medium and let it cook for a minute or so.
  3. Then, add in your pumpkin.  Break down with a spoon and allow it to cook for 3-5 more minutes or until you notice most of the liquid has evaporated.
  4. Add the vanilla, honey (if using), pumpkin pie spice and salt.  Stir.
  5. Continue cooking until the oatmeal has reached your desired consistency.
  6. Top with an extra splash of milk, spices, nuts, etc.
