Pumpkin pie oatmeal makes for a healthy breakfast and incorporates the best flavors of the season in one warming dish. Make a batch on the weekend and portion it out into microwavable containers. On weekday mornings, add a splash of water or milk to the container, reheat in the microwave, and in minutes you’ll have a hearty breakfast reminiscent of lazy Sunday mornings.

  1. Yes! I made a recipe similar to this a few weeks back. All the flavors of pumpkin pie, but without the calories (and guilt). With mine I baked it and added a dollop of whipped cream (I couldn’t resist). I need to give this recipe a try.
