Pumpkin Oatmeal

This is by far my favorite bowl of oats and I'll even go far enough to say my ALL time favorite breakfast! While my sister came to visit I always give her a list of items to bring down, as there are quite a few that are hard to find or too expensive, so pumpkin is included. And as it officially is fall season, I thought I would share a recipe to bring-in this beloved season. I must admit fall and winter are my favorite times of year, the holiday spirit, food flavors, family, cooler weather... 

This is a delicious treat and perfect way to start any morning. This bowl of oats is nutritious, filling, creamy, and reminiscent of the classes pumpkin pie. I would gladly eat this every morning, in fact I am down to my last can of pumpkin out of 3!

Pumpkin Oatmeal: (serves 1)

1/3 cup oats
1 cup water
sprinkle of salt
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup pumpkin
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp sweetener
1 tbsp nut/seed butter (optional)

Bring water & milk to a boil in small sauce pan, add oats & salt, reduce heat. Let oats simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Add in pumpkin, chia seeds, cinnamon, & sweetener, mix well until thoroughly combined. Let simmer for another few minutes. Pour into a bowl, top with nut/seed butter, seeds, nuts, or dried fruit if desired. Enjoy!
