This oatmeal is one of my go-to breakfasts no matter what the season. Sun butter and pumpkin are mixed into piping hot oats to make them super silky and rich, and you can top it with whatever spices, fruit, nuts, or power foods are in the pantry.
Ingredients
  • ½ C gluten-free rolled oats
  • ½ C non-dairy milk (I prefer almond milk)
  • ½ C water
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 – 2 T sun butter (or your favorite nut butter)
  • ¼ C pumpkin puree
  • 1 t pure maple syrup
  • ¼ t cinnamon
  • ½ banana, sliced
  • 2 T chopped pecans or walnuts
  • Optional topping ideas: hemp seeds, nutmeg, pumpkin seeds
Make It
  1. In a small saucepan, combine oats, milk, water, and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered until thickened, about 5 minutes. When cooked, remove from heat and stir in sun butter and pumpkin puree right away so they melt into the oats. Mix in or top with remaining ingredients.
