Keyword oatmeal
Prep Time 1 minute
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 11 minutes


  • 1/2 cup gluten-free organic rolled oats **whatever oatmeal you buy, you can follow the instructions. generally it's a 1:2 ratio of oats to water
  • 1 cup filtered water I try to use filter water for everything I cook, particularly foods like oats that absorb the water they're cooked in
  • 1/8-1/4 cup organic pumpkin puree the only ingredient should be pumpkin - no sugar or anything else added
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4-1/2 cup frozen blueberries, defrosted (fresh work too of course) I warm mine in a dish in the toaster oven
  • sweetener of choice – I usually use monk fruit to keep it sugar-free, sometimes I'll add a little honey or maple

Optional add-ins

  • 1/2-1 tbsp chia and/ or flax seed
  • dash or three of nutmeg
  • dash or two of cloves
  • dash or four of allspice
  • 1 tsp maca
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • serving of glutamine
  • serving of plant-based protein powder
  • serving of collagen powder
  • any other adaptogens or superfood powders

Optional toppings

  • cacao nibs
  • bee pollen
  • drizzle of almond butter
  • goji berries
  • coconut


  1. Heat oatmeal according to instructions. Usually boil the water (perhaps with a small dash of sea salt), add the oats, then reduce to a simmer for a few minutes until the water is fully absorbed. If adding turmeric, add it to the water before adding the oats. 

  2. Add the other spices at any point during cooking. 

  3. If using frozen blueberries, defrost them by warming in the toaster oven on super low heat (warm setting) or defrost in the microwave.

  4. Once the oats are fully cooked, turn off the heat then stir in the pumpkin and any other add-ins you wish. 

  5. Scoop the oats into a bowl and top with all the fun things and enjoy!
