Pumpkin Spice Latte Oatmeal (Vegan)

I feel like I’m a bit late to the party with this pumpkin spice latte oatmeal recipe! But I had lots of mini pumpkins left after Halloween and I wanted to put them to good use.

This recipe was inspired by my conversation with Eleanor from Green + Aquamarine. It turns out that she loves porridge, just like me and she was raving about an amazing bowl of pumpkin spice oats she made – so I had to try it!

I love adding all sorts of vegetables to my porridge including courgette, cauliflower and beetroot. Pumpkin is also a great addition. It will give your oats a thicker texture and adds vitamins such as A and C, check out this article for 8 health benefits of pumpkin.

Pureed pumpkin will work best in this recipe. You can buy it pre-canned (look in the world food or American section if you’re in the UK) or make your own by roasting and mashing pumpkin.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Oatmeal Recipe

Serves 1
1 of your 5-a-day

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk

  3. Pour your oats into a bowl and top with caramelised pecans, chia seeds and cacao nibs.

    Wow. This looks so incredibly decadent but really is not at all decadent, just delicious (or at least I imagine it to be)

    I would never have thought of adding pumpkins to oatmeal but it is such a fab idea and I like how you said that it creates a thicker consistency! It looks divine x

    That’s a great idea so that the left over pumpkin wont go to waste. The pumpkin spice oatmeal looks amazing though I never thought of mixing oatmeal and pumpkin before.

  11. November 7, 2017 / 2:13 pm

    I love this recipe, what a great idea so pumpkin won’t get thrown out. I have never tried oatmeal, however this is making me want to x

  12. November 7, 2017 / 3:13 pm

    I’ve never actually tried pumpkin so I really should give it a go. It sounds like a lovely warm breakfast idea, perfect for the cold mornings at the moment.

    I once ordered pumpkin to make a pumpkin pie I couldn’t find any in my local supermarkets so I checked a american food shop I knew of online and managed to get some. I’m not sure if this would be to my taste but if I manage to get some more pumpkin puree I will give it a try x

  14. November 7, 2017 / 5:13 pm

    This looks delicious. Still not sure about pumpkin puree but I’m willing to try.

    We’re a big fan of pumpkin spices and love porridge too so a combination of these is good for us! Sounds like a great winter dish 🙂
