Can you believe I haven’t had pumpkin oatmeal since February of this year? I know! That is way too long.
I welcomed it back into my life today and am happy to start another season of filling pumpkin oats :)
Today’s base was:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water
- pinch salt
- 1/2 banana
- 1/4 cup pumpkin
- LOTS of cinnamon
I cooked the oatmeal in the microwave with the banana, then stirred in the pumpkin and cinnamon right before eating.
My toppings today were the last few slices of banana and a serving of my favorite: Nuts Over Raspberries TJs trail mix. I mixed most of the nuts in the oatmeal, saving just a few and all the dark chocolate chips for the top.
I love this mix with the pumpkin oats. The almonds and peanuts are salty, the raspberries are sweet, and the dark chocolate is just good.
Have you had your favorite fall food yet?
I’ve definitely had some winter squash, soup, and hot tea, but I feel like fall is really here now that I’ve had my pumpkin oatmeal.
