One of my most favorite pumpkin things to enjoy during the fall is pumpkin oatmeal. Sweet spices with pumpkin and nuts in delicious warm oatmeal make the cold weather totally worth it.
It’s fall which means one thing.
Well, it means more than one thing, but there is one MOST IMPORTANT thing about fall.
You don’t need much to whip up a yummy, pumpkin oatmeal for breakfast. You need some pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and your favorite oatmeal. I use Quaker Steel Cut Oats, USDA Organic, and Non GMO which are resealable. One pack is 1lb which means these last me about one month depending on my mood and the weather.
This is perfect for my morning routine! First, it’s organic which I love. It is high in fiber and protein, and has no sugar which is perfect. It comes in a few varieties but I prefer steel cut oats because they are less processed than traditional rolled oats and they help keep you fuller longer.
You don’t need any additional ingredients to enjoy oatmeal, but you certainly can get creative like I do and make pumpkin oatmeal. You can use any of the flavors, they all go great with the pumpkin!
- Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and heat until warm.
