Hearty Pumpkin Spice Steel Cut Oats

Now that fall is in the air, it is Pumpkin Spice season! I am a true fan of all things with cinnamon, so I am a die hard Pumpkin Spice fan! It is getting down into the 40’s here at night and we had to pull out the down comforter last night as I just couldn’t get warm! So it’s time to start those chilly mornings off right with a nice hearty warm breakfast. Last week I shared with you how to Preserve your Pumpkin and Winter Squash by Roasting and Freezing. This week, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite ways to use up some of that frozen pumpkin. When the mornings are chilly, there is nothing like a warm bowl of hearty steel cut oats to warm your soul. Add in a little maple syrup, pumpkin spice and some pecans or walnuts, and life is good. This is a whole foods vegetarian recipe that can easily be made vegan/plant based. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Hearty Pumpkin Spice Steel Cut Oats as much as I do! The Ingredients:   I like Bob’s Red Mill Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats, as they cook in 7 minutes instead of 20. I am not a morning person to begin with, so anything that makes my morning quick and easy is a good thing! You will also need Pumpkin Puree (to make your own for the freezer, see my post from last week here) and Pumpkin Pie Spice. You can make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice by mixing together 4 spices. Mix 1 tspn of ground cinnamon, 1/4 tspn of ground nutmeg, 1/4 tspn ground ginger and 1/8 tspn of ground cloves.  Optional ingredients are maple…
