Pumpkin Oatmeal Porridge (Dairy & Gluten Free)

If this gluten free Pumpkin Oatmeal Porridge doesn’t scream FALL I don’t know what does!! Creamy pumpkin puree, a lot of warm, sweet spices and the very last figs of the season all blend together in this velvety porridge creating a triumph of flavors!

Here’s the truth: I didn’t grow up eating oatmeal for breakfast as in Italy it’s not popular AT ALL. I didn’t even know what a porridge was until I was in my twenties, when my (American) husband introduced me to this delicious breakfast food.



Since the day he made it for me at breakfast, I absolutely fell in love and started making it almost every day, experimenting with different flavors, add ons and cooking methods to find the perfect porridge recipe!

Is "Gluten Free Oatmeal" Really Gluten Free?

Now, a note on “gluten free” oats. When you find oatmeal labeled as “gluten free, what that means is that those oats were NOT cross-contaminated with wheat, rye or barley during the farming, manufacturing or packaging process, BUT they still contain the protein “avenin”.

Gluten free oats are generally fine for people with non celiac gluten sensitivity. As per those who suffer from celiac disease, some of them can tolerate uncontaminated oats, while others can experience an autoimmune response after consumption.



If you are celiac and have no physical symptoms after eating gluten free oatmeal, but still want to make sure oats are not provoking villous atrophy or intestinal damage, check out this post that clarifies the confusion about this subject.

Some As to your Qs on this Gluten Free Pumpkin Oatmeal Porridge:

Honestly… NO! I tried to make this pumpkin oatmeal porridge sit overnight in my fridge, but in the morning, I ended up transferring it in a saucepan and cooking it, because if you want it creamy and chewy, that’s the only way!

If you can’t tolerate gluten free oats, but still want to enjoy this creamy pumpkin porridge, you can try these Quinoa Flakes (they are GF certified) of you can try subbing oats for Rice Flakes (on Amazon I only found these 2 brands: brand 1brand 2, which seem fine, but aren’t certified gluten free.



Check at your local organic store if you need to find a certified alternative.

Definitely! While figs pair really well with the flavors of a pumpkin porridge, there are other fruit that go great with it too.



My favorites are other Fall fruits: such as pears, persimmons or oven a simple piece of banana.
