Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

November 5, 2013 by Melanie Zook

Want a warm, comforting breakfast that’s packed with fiber, immune-boosting vitamin A, omega-3s & fall flavor?  Give this one a try, and for smoother mornings, make it ahead (here’s how).




Didn’t use the whole can of pureed pumpkin?  Freeze into cubes in an ice cube tray, pop out into a freezer bag, and store in the freezer for a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie, your next batch of oatmeal (a lot more oatmeal ideas!) or even for baby.
