Pumpkin Spiced Oatmeal

A warm, creamy bowl of pumpkin spiced oatmeal is a great way to start your morning! High in fiber and heart healthy whole grains, this breakfast will fill you up and keep you satisfied until lunch.

I love the convenience of overnight oats in a jar, but today I was craving a warm bowl of oatmeal just like Mom used to make. She made the best oatmeal when I was a kid, it was so creamy (made with whole milk) and she always cooked it with cinnamon sticks.

I tried to replicate the creaminess using a blend of almond milk and water to keep it light and the results were wonderful. Topped it with homemade pumpkin butter, skinny pumpkin granola and a pinch more cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice… heavenly!

If you’ve made pumpkin granola, it’s the perfect topping to add a little crunch. If not, you can top it with a few dried cranberries and chopped pecans or pepitas. Enjoy!
