    Do you need to thaw it overnight when freezing it or can you just heat it right out of the freezer? Is it best to soak overnight before freezing if not thawing it first?

    • mindy says:

      These will be fine going directly to the freezer. The night before–move to the fridge and then heat through in the microwave.

    Do you use quick oats or regular?

  3. Maggie Kleiven says:

    Would steel cut oats work? Thanks!

    super excited to try this on chilly school mornings!
    we no longer use a microwave; how long do you think it’d take heating on a stovetop? any other adjustments you’d recommend?

      Hi Cristin,

      I wouldn’t think it’d take any longer than 5-7 minutes. I agree those are the perfect days for this comfort food! Enjoy!

    for pumpkin puree, is that canned pumpkin?

  6. Sarah says:

    OH, and are all oats Gluten-free, or only specially marked oats?

    • Kelly says:

      The short answer is yes all oats are gluten free, however you have to worry about contamination. There are facilities that package oats that package other products that contain gluten. You’re simply looking for no cross contamination. Hope that helps!

        Thanks! I don’t know all the in’s & outs, except that my daughter seems to be gluten ‘intolerant’. No allergies, just stomach issues. Thanks so much! Can’t wait to try it, and yes, I’ll use canned pumpkin! LOL
