This easy Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll N'Oatmeal makes a delicious holiday alternative to oatmeal for breakfast, snack, or treat. :) GrokGrub.com

Fact: cereal is my favorite unhealthy temptation. Do you remember the hullabaloo last month over the news that a surprising number of drunk vegetarians eat meat? Well, if I’m going to indulge after a night of fun… it’ll be cereal. So when I saw Recipes to Nourish’s Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal, I couldn’t wait to give it a happy holidays, grain-free spin. My pumpkin cinnamon roll n’oatmeal is a very pared-down version, and while I had more developed plans for the white drizzle, when it came down it? I decided in favor of simple coconut milk. And it didn’t suffer at all! This tastes sweet and festive enough with the banana and pumpkin in the n’oatmeal (plus the coconut sugar in the cinnamon swirl) without doing anything complicated.

Let me tell you: I didn’t intend to eat a bite of this after photographing it, and then I looked down at it and ate half a bowl. It’s that fun and tasty! Perfect for a holiday morning (or as a late-night snack that won’t completely undermine your wellness goals). Play around with using butternut squash or even sweet potato puree if pumpkin isn’t readily available. Just load everything into a food processor, stir together the topping, drizzle and then enjoy!

YES we are cereal-obsessed partners in crime. Cereal is my ultimate comfort food. I rarely keep it in the house anymore because I have no willpower. I’m making this tomorrow morning – shockingly I have all the ingredients for it, plus it looks AMAZING and nutritious!

Am I missing something? Is this supposed to be eaten hot or cold?

Reply

Room temperature is how it comes out when made according to the recipe. You could heat it gently over low heat or refrigerate it no problem, though. It’s quite versatile.

What constitutes the protein in this?

Katharine June 3, 2016 - 7:25 am

Hi, this was delicious 🙂 I’m not a big fan of cinnamon, but thought the rest sounded good, so I topped it with some fresh blueberries instead and mixed the coconut sugar directly into it, and it was yum! I also warmed it for a minute, so it felt more like porridge 😉 Thanks for the recipe x

Reply
Katharine June 3, 2016 - 7:26 am

Oh and I added some collagen powder too for the protein 🙂

“N’Oatmeal” is short for not oatmeal.

Reply
Michelle November 25, 2016 - 5:30 pm

if using butternut squash, does it need to be cooked first or do you puree it raw?

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor November 25, 2016 - 8:59 pm

Cooked first!

Reply
Rachel March 5, 2018 - 2:07 am

“N’Oats” is listed as an ingredient. What is it? What store can I find it?

Reply
Heather November 21, 2018 - 8:34 pm

I am curious… about how many n’oats would make sense with this recipe? I was thinking of pairing it with spaghetti squash… THANK YOU!

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor January 6, 2019 - 2:10 am

There’s no such thing as n’oats. 🙂 It’s called n’oatmeal because there are no oats in it.
