After this morning’s appearance on Breakfast TV Toronto I’ve had a ton of emails asking for the version of oatmeal that I am loving right now.
So here is the Ms Smith!
1 serving of cooked oatmeal – about 3/4 cup
2 -3 tablespoonfuls of pure pumpkin puree – not pumpkin pie filling! – see note below
1 small handful of walnuts – about 2-4 tbsp
1 heaping teaspoonful of ground flaxseed
Drizzle of maple syrup or honey
Sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice
- Put the cooked oatmeal into a bowl and top with everything! Easy! Tastes like the fall!
Pure pumpkin puree comes canned. I buy a small can to use during the week. Remove the puree from the can and spoon into a resealable container, can be stored in the fridge for up to 3-5 days. Or you can freeze leftovers. If you grow pumpkin cook, mash, and freeze in 2 – 3 tbsp portions. Thaw the night before in the fridge.
