I’ve Been Converted – Butternut Squash and Chocolate Creamy Rice

The first time I tried pumpkin oats, I wasn’t a fan. It might have been the pumpkin I used, but I didn’t like it. Seeing everyone else enjoying them, I wondered why mine had turned out so gross, so bland, so blah.

So I decided to give them a try again, but opted to use some organic canned butternut squash. This time, it did not disappoint!

Butternut Squash and Chocolate Creamy Rice

serves 1


  • 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Creamy Rice
  • 1.5 cups water (or milk) – I used water with some powdered goat’s milk
  • 1/2 cup pureed butternut squash
  • 1/2 – 1 tbsp chocolate brown rice protein
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • apple butter
  • nut butter

Combine the ingredients through the pumpkin pie spice in a small sauce pan and simmer until desired thickness.

Top with apple butter, and nut butters of choice.

I’ve been converted. Enjoy!
