You guys! Only another week and a half until Thanksgiving. I’m part excited, part sad, and part not ready! I’m always saying that time goes by too fast, but November goes by extra fast. I sometimes wish I had more time or at the very least, find a way to slow down time so that I can savor the short fall season just a little longer.

Lately, like every fall, I’ve been using pumpkin puree a lot, but I don’t use all of it up each time I use it. So there’s always pumpkin puree leftover in the fridge. That leftover pumpkin puree is always perfect for breakfast. In your oatmeal, in your hot chocolate, in your latte.

So today, I’m sharing with you yet another recipe that would be perfect for when you have leftover pumpkin puree. Especially right after Thanksgiving. I’m always looking for new ways to use up leftovers.

In a medium sized pot, heat water until it comes to a boil. Slowly add steel cut oats to the pot and let it simmer for about 5 minutes before lowering the heat. Let the oats cook on low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Once the oats have softened and thickened, add pumpkin puree, ground cinnamon, maple syrup, and almond milk. Stir to evenly incorporate all the ingredients.
