Pumpkin Hot “Cereal”

During my “Whole 15” trial, I mixed up some canned pumpkin, fresh apple (cored), nut butter, seeds/nuts, shredded coconut, raisins, chia or flax seeds, hemp seeds, and some spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and voila! A grain-free breakfast porridge that is super filling and delicious. I have made it again a few times, and this morning I decided to make a large batch so I could have it ready to enjoy every day this week for breaky. This would also be a great add-in if you are eating real hot cereal; I like some oatmeal now and then and this would be super tasty mixed in. You can totally get creative and add different fruits like blueberries, cranberries or various types of nuts/seeds.

Pumpkin Hot “Cereal” (big batch for single eater)

  • 1 (15 oz) canned pumpkin
  • 2 apples, cored
  • 1/2 C shredded coconut
  • 1/3 C (a few tablespoons) almond or other nut butter
  • 2 T chia or flax seeds
  • 2 T hemp seeds
  • 1/2 C mixed seeds/nuts (pumpkin seeds, sunflower, almonds, walnuts, etc.)
  • 1/2 C raisins (use more or less for desired sweetness)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
Combine all together in a food processor and blend to an oatmeal-like consistency (it will be more wet since there are no grains to soak up the moisture). Heat and enjoy!
