Bring in the fall season with this healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal made with oats, pumpkin puree, diced apples, maple syrup, and walnuts.
You’re in the mood for pumpkin.
Crack open that can of pumpkin puree and dig into this healthy breakfast. This Maple Pumpkin Oatmeal is not your usual sad bowl of oats.
It’s full of warm spices, creamy pumpkin and sweet fall flavors. Perfect alongside a cup of this amazing chronic coffee.
When that alarm goes off, you’ll bounce right on out of bed so you can hurry up and dive into this bowl of creamy pumpkin deliciousness!
I can never use a whole can of pumpkin fast enough, so I freeze mine in these Tovolo silicon trays. Then pop one out when I’m ready to make this oatmeal.
These silicon cube trays come in handy for other uses too. Here are some ways to utilize them:
- lemon juice
- ice cubes with fresh herbs (especially mint)
- pesto sauce
- tomato paste
- chipotle in adobo
Did you know that we owe the tradition of pumpkin carving to Irish immigrants? When they settled in America in the 1800’s, they altered their tradition of carving faces on turnips to ward off evil spirits to carving pumpkins!
