I love coming up with new ways to use pumpkin!
This morning, The Captain wanted a bowl of corn flakes for breakfast... not content with that, I loaded up my bowl with lots of other goodies and came up with this. It is almost like pudding... very creamy and rich tasting.
I think almost any plain cereal would work and I plan to experiment with others soon - nuts? chocolate chips? peanut butter?

When you first mix all the ingrients together, it is quite wet... just wait a few minutes!
It soon becomes as thick as pudding. Mmmmm.
