Did I mention it's gluten-free, refined sugar-free and vegan!

 So here's the scoop!

Ingredients for 2:

1/2c organic oatmeal (I use Bob's Red Mill)

1/2can organic pumpkin puree (Farmer's Market uses BPA free lining)

1-2 tbsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp pumpkin spice


Boil 1c filtered water and add oats.  Let simmer until they are the texture you like.  I let mine boil for about 10-15 minutes so its soft enough to share with my baby girl.  Fold in your puree, coconut oil and add your pumpkin spice.


Add a dollop of coconut cream if you like! I know I do!  Now drizzle on the organic maple syrup and enjoy!
