30 okt Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal
Halloween is calling ! … and so is this Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal, for you!
This bowl of Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal is like a warm hug in the morning on those cold winter days.
Filling, Fresh, Creamy, Chunky and Rich (but not too heavy!) It will keep you satisfied until lunch.Unfortunately in Holland, we can’t buy canned pumpkin (yet) so we have to make it fresh (how horrible, fresh pumpkin?;)
Making a pumpkin dish at night? Save the other half of the pumpkin to make a lovely Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal bowl in the morning! I used the Golden Nugget Pumpkin (see below). The Golden Nugget is my favorite because of his rich flavor and his moistness (is that even a word?)
Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal
Makes 2 big bowls
- half a organic Golden Nugget Pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons of oatmeal
- 4 tablespoons of almond milk or water
- 2 tablespoons of brown rice syrup or maple syrup
- 1 banana
- pumpkin spice: Mix the following spices:
- 1/3 cup ground cinnamon.
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger.
- 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg or mace.
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
Toppings: Walnuts, raisins, dates or kasha (my fav)
-Remove seeds and cut into chunks. Boil the Pumpkin for 15 minutes until soft.
-Let cool down and place the pumpkin in the food processor and mix until it becomes a creamy puree. Add the banana and sweetener if you’d like to.
-Mix the pumpkin puree with the pumpkin spice and let it set overnight in the fridge. In a other bowl mix the almond milk/water and oatmeal and sprinkle a bit of cinnamon to add some flavor.
-In the morning: warm up your oatmeal in a pan over medium heat. Add the delicious pumpkin puree and stir until thoroughly mixed. This already smells AWESOME 🙂
-Serve warm and add some walnuts, raisins and some extra cinnamon. Or get creative with some more fruit like kiwi’s, raw cacao or kasha.
This bowl is filling but you will be needing it for those cold winter days here in Holland!
