A great alternative to traditional oatmeal if you are cutting grains and seeking ways to get more plant-based meals into your diet. This is filling and healthy, and a great way to start your day!
  1. Soak one cup raw nuts overnight.
  2. Peel, chop and cube two cups butternut squash and two small apples. *TIP* If you microwave your squash before peeling for about 4 minutes, you will save yourself a lot of blisters and curse words!
  3. If you plan to use a date, drop it in hot water for ten minutes while you complete the next steps.
  4. Drain your soaked nuts and rinse them. Add to high powered blended and create a grainy nut flour.
  5. Add squash, apples and nut flour to inner liner pot.
  6. Add one tsp cinnamon.
  7. Add two TBSP coconut sugar. Maple syrup works as a sub or brown sugar if you aren’t concerned about highly processed sugar.
  8. Drain, pit and chop the date and add it to the pot. Raisins work too!
  9. Add one cup canned coconut milk (shake can well before opening).
  10. Add 1/4 cup almond milk.
  11. Add a pinch of salt.
  12. Stir well and put pot into IP.
  13. Replace lid and set valve to sealing.
  14. Set pot for 20 min high pressure and use a quick release.
  15. Remove lid and stir, breaking up chunks of squash and apples until the consistency is more like oatmeal.
  16. Serve in a bowl and add desired topping like coconut, raisins or nuts.
