I finished my statistics homework at 2:30 am. There was one problem I didn’t understand and when I did, it took me 1 hour 1/2 to do it! I woke up at 9 am and made breakfast, starting with coffee…
But not any coffee!
Adaptation of Pumpkin Spice Latte on allrecipes
- 1 cup hot milk (I used cow milk – for a non-dairy option, I suggest almond milk since it is creamier)
- 2 espresso shots, or 1/2 cup very strong coffee
- 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 2 tbsp unrefined cane sugar
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp molasses
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1 pinch ginger
- 1 pinch cloves
Directions: Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a hand mixer. If you don’t have one, use a whisk.
Serve in a cup, sprinkled with cinnamon and nutmeg.

This can’t be compared to Starbucks pumpkin spice latte. One is super-sweet, the other is not. It actually is two very different tastes. But still, it was very good!
I drank my latte while waiting on my breakfast, that was baking.
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 3/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 small apple, peeled, grated on the coarse grating surface
- 1 handful fresh cranberries
Directions: Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix all ingredients in a small baking dish. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown.

Now I have to go hand out y homework before class.
See you tonight!
