Ingredients in these oats:

    1. Soulfull Project Hearty Grains & Seeds Multigrain Cereal Cup
      • This instant cereal cup contains so many good whole grains including oats, quinoa, chia and flax, with no sugar added. It's a versatile flavor for plain, sweet or savory!
    2. Joolies Cinnamon Date Syrup 
    3. Butternut Squash
    4. Olive Oil
      • A little drizzle of this to crisp and create that yummy brown caramelization. Feel free to swap with avocado or coconut oil (watch the smoke point on this one.) 
    5. Rosemary + Salt + Pepper
      • These are our star spices that bring a savory edge to our roasted squash to balance out the sweetness from the date syrup. 
    6. Pumpkin Seeds 
      • These add a nice crunch into the mix and great benefits like magnesium, iron, antioxidants and much more. You can read more about the benefits of pumpkin seeds here.
