Paleo Pumpkin "Oatmeal" (Recipe Revisit)
I'm revisiting this pumpkin "oatmeal" as I changed things up a bit this time around. KatieDid, the blogger from whom I adapted my first recipe, also shared a pumpkin version. She suggested including chocolate and coconut chips for flavor and texture. I bought the latter from Nuts.com since the last time I made this, so I thought I'd give it a whirl.
The coconut doesn't add a ton of coconut flavor, but does create a thicker texture more akin to oatmeal. Rather than stir chocolate into the "oatmeal" itself, I simply sprinkled a couple of Enjoy Life chocolate chips over my bowl before eating. When I stirred them in they melted, and added enough sweetener that I didn't use any syrup or honey.
Paleo Pumpkin "Oatmeal"
adapted from KatieDid
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut milk
3/4 cup water
1/2 thinly sliced banana
1/3 cup canned organic pumpkin
1/3 cup coconut chips
salt, vanilla & pumpkin pie spice, to taste
Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chips, optional
Combine coconut flour through banana in a small pot and heat over medium until combined, stirring to help break up banana.
Crack in the egg and continue to cook and stir until it's thoroughly incorporated. Turn heat to low and stir in pumpkin, coconut and flavoring. Remove from heat and sprinkle with dairy-free chocolate chip, if using.
