Ever since last weekend, when I found out it was legal to eat pumpkin, I have been dreaming about this bowl of oatmeal!
I fantasized about it. I even sacrificed my very strict morning routine to not only make, but take pictures of my oatmeal. When my husband came home from work I proudly showed him my pictures. Apparently he doesn’t understand just how much this bowl of oatmeal meant to me. Men.
I know what I’ll be having tomorrow for breakfast. And the day after that. And the day after that…. you get the idea! It’s THAT good!
Pumpkin Chia Oatmeal
1/3 c. old fashioned oats
1-2 T. chia seeds
1/8 t. salt
1 c. almond milk
2 T. pumpkin puree
cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger to taste
1 small handful pecans, a sprinkling of unsweetened coconut flakes, a few carob chips, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
Put oatmeal, chia seeds, salt, and almond milk in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and then immediately turn down the heat to medium and cook until oatmeal thickens. Add pumpkin puree, and spices. Stir. Put in a bowl. Add toppings. EAT!
