This warm and fuel-filled breakfast is the perfect way to start a cold morning—or any morning! It’s full of yummy Fall flavors and is SO easy to make. I love this comforting oatmeal topped with walnuts, pumpkin seeds, chopped dates, apple slices, and a bit of maple syrup, but feel free to get creative with your favorite toppings and mix-ins! If you don’t want to use butternut squash, you could also use pumpkin purée or sweet potato purée instead.
3 Tbsp butternut squash puree
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup milk of choice
1/8 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Combine oats and milk in saucepan over medium heat.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.
Stir until consistency is reached.
Stir in other ingredients, heat through 1 minute.
Serve with desired toppings and enjoy!
