Thinking of Fall – New Oatmeal Recipes

September is coming, the weather is chilly once again (for now) and I am craving pumpkin and squash once again! Warm, spicy breakfasts.Hearty breakfasts. And that it is 40’s in the morning helps a lot!

Pumpkin Cranberry Baked Oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut or favorite nut butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375° and place 4 oven-safe dishes or ramekins on a baking sheet (or use a muffin if you have none).

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Whisk the wet in a medium bowl, add to dry and stir. Let sit for 5 minutes, then divide between the dishes.

Bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm or refrigerate for later. Reheat for a minute in the microwave.

Makes 3 to 4 bowls, depending on how big a portion is desired.

We recently received a package of items from Essential Eating, who make delicious sprouted foods. It may look like hippy fare, the taste will win you over. So what is it? Sprouted whole grains that are rinsed, gently dried and then milled (ground), turned into flours, cereals, pasta and more. The digestibility of the grains is easy on the stomach. Their products are certified organic as well.

Growing up I hated hot cereal. It seemed to me that only old people ate that stuff. Like my parents. Oh the irony…..now we eat oatmeal or similar nearly every morning for breakfast. I took my method of how I cook oatmeal and used it to make a hearty bowl of cream of wheat. It was delicious! If you like oatmeal, you will love the sprouted cream of wheat!

Cherry & Coconut Cream of Wheat Cereal

Add the milk and dry ingredients to a medium saucepan, bring to a boil.Turn to medium-low, cook gently bubbling for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add in the almond butter and stir till melted.
