I realize I missed pumpkin season with this Pumpkin Apple (un)Oatmeal, but I was recently making a batch of my regular Apple (un)Oatmeal and decided to change things up with some leftover pumpkin I had chillin' in the fridge.  Basically the results rocked my world.

  3. Does this have the consistency of oatmeal? Would it work to puree the ingredients for quicker mornings? Looks fabulous.
