Vegan Pumpkin Spice Porridge Recipe

Deliciously creamy vegan pumpkin spice porridge recipe – full of seasonal flavours! Made with pumpkin puree and homemade pumpkin spice mix.

It’s officially ‘That time of the year!’ and pumpkin-spiced everything is popping up everywhere. My blog is not an exclusion cause pumpkin season happens to be my ultimate favourite season of the year. This year I’ve been feeling super inspired and motivated to create more pumpkin recipes aside from the regulars of roasted pumpkin and pumpkin soup – so I’ve started including pumpkin in other dishes too, such as this Pumpkin Spice Porridge Recipe, which was super warming and creamy and the perfect start into an autumn day.

Every year I stock up on a bunch of pumpkins whilst they’re available and create a bunch of recipes from them (such as this deliciously creamy pumpkin soup I created last year). As I usually have plenty of pumpkins left at the end of each autumn, I often create pumpkin puree from it and freeze it – so that I’m also able to enjoy this delicious goodness when it’s not pumpkin season.

In this recipe I am using pumpkin puree & a pumpkin spice mix – these might be standard ingredients if you’re based in the US, however, in the UK they’re sadly not widely available. For years I have been wondering whether people would buy these from in the UK and after desperately searching around online, I just decided to find out how to make them myself. After a vote over on Instagram it turned out that I wasn’t the only person unsure of where to get it/how to make it, so I decided to put up this post on how to make your own pumpkin spice & pumpkin puree. It’s super easy – make sure to check it out in case you don’t have these ready-made ingredients at home yet.

What you need to make this porridge


  • rolled oats
  • pumpkin puree
  • pumpkin spice mix OR cinnamon, ginger, clove, allspice, nutmeg
  • maple syrup
  • coconut milk


  • small saucepan
  • measuring spoons
  • whisk or spoon

How to make Vegan Pumpkin Spice Porridge

Start with the oats and add them to a saucepan over low heat. Mix in the pumpkin puree and add the coconut milk – stir to combine until no pumpkin puree lumps are left.

Next, sprinkle in your spices: ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and all-spice – the latter being optional. I don’t always have allspice available at home, so I often leave it out – it does, however, give the mix a great depth of flavour.

Cook for a few minutes whilst stirring regularly until the oats have softened and soaked up the majority of the liquid. Stir in your maple syrup. Your porridge should be thick and creamy – if it’s too liquid, simply leave it on the stove for a few more minutes. In case it’s too dry, add a little more coconut milk or a dash of water.

Lastly, transfer your porridge to a breakfast bowl and add your favourite toppings. Some of mine include banana slices, nut butter (such as almond or peanut butter), cacao nibs and flaked almonds.
