2 cups pumpkin puree or butternut squash
1 cut raw, whole milk (or your best substitute)
1/3 to 1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup oil
1/2 tsp. real salt
1 cup quick or rolled oats
1/3 cup flaxseeds or flax meal
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup dried cranberries or raisins
1/3 cup pecans or walnuts
Mix everything together and cover and let sit overnight and bake in the morning or mix in the morning and bake in evening. Soaking is needed to neutralize the phytic acid on the oats and nuts and seeds.
Butter a 9x9" baking dish. Bake at 350 for 45 - 60 minutes. Insert a toothpick in center to check for doness. Good cold or warm. We like it with cream and if for dessert add more maple syrup.
