As you know, if you’ve been following my blog or Facebook page for any length of time, oatmeal is one of my favorite go to breakfast dishes. I have it practically every morning which the exception of Sundays which are reserved for pancakes.
This morning I decided to power it up a notch by adding pumpkin puree and gluten free granola to the mix. Pumpkin oatmeal packs a powerful low fat nutritional punch on cold dark mornings. It’s like eating pumpkin pie for breakfast.
Pumpkin Power Oatmeal
1 cup gluten free steel cut oats
3 cups water
pinch of salt
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon brown sugar
pumpkin pie spices, to taste (I use cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and allspice)
Gluten free Granola for topping (I used Udi’s brand available on Amazon)
Nut milk (I used Hemp milk)
Combine oats, water and salt. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat and simmer for 10-20 minutes (I usually do 10 minutes). Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
Pour into mixing bowl. Add pumpkin puree, spices and sugar. Mix well.
Spoon into serving bowls.
Top with milk and enjoy!
