Pumpkin Coffee Cake Steel Cut Oatmeal

Warm and cozy comfort food.

Oatmeal….one of my favorite “comfort foods” for Fall and Winter (and really anytime)  It warms me up, makes me happy and cozy, and is CRAZY healthy for you!  I try and mix it up a bit, depending on my mood and the weather.  With Fall here, I was so happy to “fall” across this recipe that I varied a little.

Pumpkin Coffee Cake Oatmeal

4-6 servings

1 cup steel-cut oats

2 1/2 cup Vanilla Coconut Milk

1 cup pumpkin

1  teaspoon cinnamon

Coffee Cake Topping
6 tablespoons brown sugar (or other sweetener if you don’t use refined sugar)
6 tablespoons pecans or walnuts, chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon

The night before: Mix toppings in a small container and cover until the morning. Add all the ingredients except the toppings. Cook on low over night 7-8 hours depending on how chewy you like your oats.

In the morning: Stir your oatmeal well. It may seem watery at the top but if stirred it should be a more uniform consistency.

Top with coffee cake topping.
