Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

Enjoy this delicious heart breakfast recipe that enhances your breakfast oatmeal with delicious pumpkin and spices.  My daughter usually turns up her nose at oatmeal for breakfast, however add some pumpkin and cinnamon and low and behold she licks the bowl clean.

If you are looking for an amazing hearty breakfast on a cold fall morning this is definitely one that will keep you warm and satisfied all morning long.

Fall is one of my favorite times of year, I love the cooler weather after the hot summer, I love the beautiful fall leaves the decorate the mountains and of course I LOVE traditional fall flavors.    Pumpkin pie, fresh apple pie, carmel apples, warm hearty breakfasts and soup and breadsticks.

My kids generally enjoy basic foods like veggie burgers and fries, chocolate chip cookies and pasta but I am hoping I will be able to branch out a bit and create some fall desserts that they will enjoy without chocolate chips.  Last night I improvised and added chopped pear to their usual chocolate chip cookies and they turned out delicious!  Hopefully the successes will keep on coming.

My dad has commissioned me, or rather asked me, to create a dessert for him tommorrow.  I will be making a cheesecake with fresh peach and blueberries baked in with a traditional pie crust.  Stay tuned, I think this recipe will blow you away!

Well, enough rambling and on to the delicious pumpkin pie spiced oatmeal.......Enjoy!

Nummy, nutritious, and a great way to use up an open can of pumpkin.

oh I LOVE pumpkin. This recipe was just what I need in the mornings. My 3 yr old daughter didn't even complain that we weren't having cereal, and she served herself (AND finished eating!) a whole bowl!
