Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine the oats, pumpkin, 1 cup water, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Stir well and set aside.
  2. In a blender, combine 2 cups water and 1/2 cup cashews. If using the dates to sweeten the oats, add them to the blender too. Pour the cashew milk into a bowl and combine with the chia seeds. Stir well. Set aside and allow the chia to set for ~10 minutes. (Note: for nut allergies, use pumpkin seeds instead and follow the same instructions).
  3. Wash the apples and chop into small pieces. If using walnuts, lightly crush them with the back of a fork.
  4. Once the chia is set, layer the oats, chia pudding, and apples in 4 jars or containers and top with walnuts or pumpkin seeds. (Note: you can also just mix everything together in one bowl rather than layering the ingredients). Enjoy!
