✓ 1/2 cup cooked pumpkin or other squash (I like sweet dumpling best for this) ✓ 1 1/2 tablespoon dessicated coconut (very finely shredded) ✓ 1/2 - 1 tablespoon sweetener such as honey or coconut sugar ✓ 1/2 - 1 tablespoon coconut oil or grassfed butter (coconut oil to make it vegan) ✓ 1/2 tablespoon flax meal ✓ 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds ✓ 1 teaspoon cinnamon ✓ 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract ✓ 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice ✓ Pinch of sea salt
✓ Cook squash if you don't have it pre-cooked (cut up, place in baking pan, add 1/2 cup water, cover with foil and bake @350 for 20-40 minutes depending on size) ✓ Mix honey, vanilla and squash in a bowl with a fork, hand mixer or whisk until smooth ✓ Sprinkle spices and salt onto mixture and blend well ✓ Mix in the chia seeds, coconut and flax meal ✓ Microwave for 2 minutes ✓ Stir and let sit for 5 minutes in the microwave to allow chia seeds to soak, if you wish ✓ Add coconut oil or butter and mix in, garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon ✓ Enjoy on it's own as a porridge topped with nuts or raisins, also as a dip for fruit like apple slices ✓ Alternatively, you can just throw all of the ingredients in a Vitamix for this and it will heat while blending on high setting, it will also make a creamier thick smoothie like texture as it grinds it rather than mixing. You will have to use the tamper constantly when using this method as it is a thick mixture.
