1 cup of old fashioned oats (I use gluten free ones)
1.5 cup of coconut milk (you could also use any non dairy milk or just plain old regular milk)
2-3 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1/2 cup of canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon of ginger
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
2-3 tablespoons of honey
- Stir all ingredients together in a saucepan over medium heat. Mix well until everything is combined.
- Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring often to avoid burning.
- You will notice the oatmeal is done when the oats have grown slightly in size, looking ever so fluffier.
- Remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly. Enjoy:-D. Drizzle on top with a bit of additional honey if needed.
This recipe is enough to serve 1-2 people, depending on how hungry you are.
