I don’t know about you, but I’m still about that “pumpkin everyyyything life.” Christmas is 3 weeks away and I have yet to even think about anything winter-like (outside of putting up a wreath and tree). After Thanksgiving I still had some pumpkin puree leftover and for whatever reason, pumpkin spice oatmeal seemed like a good idea.
Saturdays are my favorite day to experiment. Especially with breakfast food. To be honest, my weekday mornings are pretty nonexistent. I wake up with just enough time to get dressed, make some quick oatmeal, and head off to work. If I actually wanted to make something the required a bit of effort, I’d have to wake up earlier and that ain’t happening.
So needless to say, Saturdays are made for experimenting. I can get up whenever I want, mosey on down to the kitchen, and browse through the pantry and fridge to figure out what to make. That’s where this pumpkin spice oatmeal comes in.
What I love most about this pumpkin spice oatmeal is that it’s quick and doesn’t take much time at all! I think I could actually make this during the week! If not, it’s great for meal prepping. To reheat I just added a little water, popped it in the microwave for 45 seconds-1 min., stir, and voila! It’s ready to eat. Top it with your favorites like walnuts or bananas. I think flax seeds would go well here too!
