Butternut squash and apples are 2 tasty foods of the Fall season. How lucky that these fruits are available just as the weather is cooling and oatmeal begins to be truly appreciated for its hearty warmth once again!
- 1/2 cup cooked homemade oatmeal cereal
- 1/4 cup cooked butternut squash puree
- 1/4 cup applesauce
1. Mix and puree or mash all ingredients together and serve slightly warmed.
2. Store any leftovers for up to 48 hours in the refrigerator. This makes a very yummy and nutritious breakfast for any time of the day.
Quick tip: May be frozen but upon thawing, the oatmeal may be a bit rubbery and/or gritty. Stir and blend vigorously as needed to reconstitute. Consider baking the apples and the butternut squash together in the same pan to save time and really bring out the wonderful flavors.
