This week I have a special video to share with you guys.

Not because it’s pumpkin (and we all  LOVE pumpkin) but because it’s in honor and support of the ‘Be The Gold’ childhood cancer awareness campaign.

The goal is to make the GOLD ribbon associated with CHILDHOOD cancer just as the PINK ribbon is associated with BREAST cancer in order to raise awareness and funding for this crazy important cause.

Eliazbeth Stuk is the amazing woman behind the campaign and will blow you away with her dedication and commitment to raising awareness.  You can read more about her journey at The Wishful Artist and follow the campaign using the following links.

As for the oats, well they’re pumpkin and delicious SO clearly a smart choice as the fall season rolls in!  Check it out and let me know how YOU like to eat your oats this time of year?!!

  1. Dani: I doubled the recipe and made about five 8-oz. portions to put in the fridge for my breakfast. It is delicious, but the only thing is that I prefer my oatmeal a bit sweeter. I did add ean xtra tablespoon maple syrup for a doubled recipe, but still not sweet enough. I decided not to add any more maple syrup and just train myself to eat oatmeal with less sweetener. Thanks for a great recipe.

  2. This is just so tasty to wake up to; mmmm yum! I like to make the consistency much more creamier by stirring the oats into the cold water in the pot and then continuing to stir until it comes to a boil. That way you coax the starch out of the oats into the water to make the thick, creamy texture. Add all those wonderful fall ingredients and yes, just like pumpkin custard pie…almost

    You can make even a creamier texture (babies like this) by making an actual coarse flour (meal) out of rolled oats or with steel cut oats by grinding them in a blender, food processor, or, for a small batch in a small food chopper or coffee grinder. Boy, that way you really end up with a pudding-like consistency.

    Many years ago I showed my mother this trick when her teeth no longer worked very well for her. It was a godsend because she loved oatmeal so much!

  3. This is actually exactly how I looove to make my oats! Sometimes I add the raisins ten minutes before the oats are done so they get nice and warm and plump. A dollop of greek yogurt on top is never a bad thing either.

  4. Sounds fantastic, but 510 minutes?!? Who has that kind of time? AHHHH!, I KILL me!!! Buuut seriously, its really good!
