Baked Pumpkin & Whole Grain Hot Cereal. Gluten-free.


Baked Whole Grain Pumpkin Hot Cereal An Unrefined Vegan

Is the name a bit clunky? It is, isn’t it? I originally called this (the equally-clunky) Baked Whole Grain Pumpkin Oatmeal – and then I realized I hadn’t included oats. D’oh! The best I could come up with was “cereal,” though that conjures up cold bowls of Cheerios or Wheaties. Anyway, it’s breakfast, it’s baked, it has pumpkin, it’s healthy, and it’s good.

    This sounds sooo good! I’m now kicking myself that I just cooked a batch of quinoa in veggie broth instead of water. Hmmm….maybe the other ingredients would cover that up?? Either way I hope to try this soon!

    Looks so warm and comforting Annie! I have never tried quinoa or brown rice in a breakfast type of recipe or in desserts…I’m real finicky like that, but this sure sounds delicious, especially with all of my favorite spices in it!
