fall is definitely the best season for oatmeal, and this year i wholeheartedly hopped on the pumpkin bandwagon as well. another pumpkin recipe is up on my blog from earlier this month, inspired by caitlin shoemaker. (who knows, if starbucks ever makes their pumpkin spice mix vegan i might have that as well!!) sadly i didn’t have ripe bananas on hand, but if you do, chop them up and add them as a topping for an even sweeter pumpkin pie taste.
ingredients: pumpkin puree, oats, water or plant milk, agave, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric.
toppings: chia seeds, coconut, buckinis, molasses.
mix together all non-topping ingredients in a bowl and microwave on MEDIUM heat for 5 minutes for a creamy texture. if your microwave doesn’t have heat settings, cooking the oats on the stove will produce much better results. arrange toppings as you like, and enjoy!! this is the best way to get out of bed on those chilly fall mornings, and the filling grains and starches will get you through work or school with tons of energy.
