Blog friends how’s your Tuesday morning treating ya?
This morning it looked like this outside…..
and I finally felt like it was time to get out the pumpkin. When it’s 75+ degrees outside I just don’t feel like it’s fall so the pumpkin has to stay in the can. But today, in the first rainstorm of fall I knew it was finally pumpkin time.
So I decided to make pumpkin oats.
Pumpkin oats and myself do NOT have a great relationship. I don’t know what it is about pumpkin oats but I NEVER make them right. Usually, I can’t even eat the creation when they’re done. Oh pumpkin please just make my oats delicious!
To make my foolproof pumpkin oats I use
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup oats
- pinch salt
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp molasses
- 1 tsp milled flax
- a few drops vanilla
- pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 cup pumpkin (added to the boiling water, not stirred in at the end)
Don’t forget to dollop a spoon of sunflower seed butter in the middle.
