Happy Labor Day! For those of you that don’t have work and/or school today, I hope you enjoy enjoy your day off. I love three day weekends! One day for work/chores; one day for rest; one day for PLAY! I believe every weekend should be a three day weekend, what do ya think?
I woke up to the let the pups outside and was surprised at how “fall-ish” it felt! There was a cool, crisp air. It was beautiful! Fall is in the air, friends! As I went in the kitchen to make my breakfast, I was naturally feeling something warm and “fall-ish”. I immediately opted for oatmeal and then noticed I had some pumpkin pie mix in the refrigerator. Oats + pumpkin pie mix = pumpkin pie oatmeal! Sounded perfect.
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
1 cup water
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 ripe banana
1/3 cup pumpkin pie mix
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1-2 tablespoons your favorite add-in (chocolate chips, flax/chia seeds, raisins, nuts, nut butter, etc.)
Bring water to a boil on the stove. Pour oats in and reduce to medium heat. Cook for about 4 minutes. Add the banana, pumpkin pie mix, and cinnamon. Cook for another 1-2 minutes (depending on how thick you like it). Take off heat and sprinkle flax or chia seeds on top. Serve in your favorite bowl and enjoy! Makes 1 serving.
And of course I enjoyed my oatmeal with a delicious hot mug of coffee.
Pumpkin pie oatmeal and hot coffee is a winner combo for a warm, fall breakfast!
