This is a great choice before your workout and on those chilly fall mornings. Steel-cut oats have no gluten, so they are not a problem for anyone who is grain-sensitive or suffers from Celiac disease.

  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1/4 cup canned unsweetened pumpkin (organic preferred)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon agave syrup
  • Chopped raw walnuts (optional)
