Pumpkin, Apple, and Chia Steel Cut Oatmeal Power Breakfast
⅓ Cup Pumpkin Puree
1 Cup Steel Cut Oats
1 Whole Apple
1 ½ Tablespoons Chia Seeds
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon and Nutmeg
1 Tsp Salt
Walnuts or Sliced Almonds
In a medium sauce pan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil
Once water begins to boil, add 1 cup steel cut oats, the chia seeds, pinch of salt, and 1/3 cup pumpkin puree.
Cover the sauce pan and bring the temperature to low. Be sure to stir the oatmeal every 3-4 minutes. You do not want the oats to burn on the bottom of the pan.
Once the oatmeal begins to thicken (roughly 20-25 minutes), add the diced apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Once the oatmeal has reached the desired consistency and the oats have been cooked through (most of the water should be gone), turn off heat.
Place in a bowl and add walnuts or sliced almonds and yogurt on top for extra protein.
Another optional ingredient is coconut sugar to increase fat in the bowl.
Enjoy! Stores in fridge for up to 4 days.
Adding the yogurt and the coconut flakes helps with getting that extra protein in the morning and ensuring you don’t get any glucose spikes. Play around with other ingredients. You can sub flax seeds for the chia seeds, use different types of nuts, or even different fruit!
