Munchkin Pumpkin Porridge

For cold mornings where life is a struggle and you need a little warmth and spice to bring you back...

Ingredients

  • 1 munchkin pumpkin
  • 75g oats
  • 250ml oat milk
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut milk 
  • 1 teaspoon of raw honey 
  • A dollop of almond milk

Method

  1. Peel and cut the pumpkin taking all of the seeds out. As a side note, you could keep the seeds and roast them for a yummy snack.
  2. Steam the pumpkin pieces in a saucepan until they are soft (this will take approximately 5 minutes).
  3. Mash the pumpkin pieces with a fork, mix in the cinnamon and then set aside.
  4. Make your porridge. I make mine in a pan with non-dairy milk. I literally put the oats and milk into a pan until it starts to bubble. Today I used oat milk and barley flakes. I don't add any sweeteners or additional ingredients while the porridge is cooking - I always save that until the end.
  5. Once your porridge is cooked, mix in the pumpkin, honey and the coconut oil. If you fancy, you could always add more cinnamon or nutmeg for extra spice.
  6. Pour into your bowl.
  7. Sprinkle chia seeds and hemp seeds on top. I also added a dollop of almond butter.
  8. Enjoy :)
