Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Is anyone else missing fall already?!

It’s my absolute favorite season, so I usually find myself craving fall flavors year round.  You just can’t go wrong with pumpkin and cinnamon!

These creamy oats are so cozy on a chilly morning, especially paired with a blanket and big mug of chai!

Full of fiber, omega 3s, protein, and vitamin A, this bowl is such an energizing morning boost!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup quick oats

1 cup water

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 heaping tablespoon of cinnamon (the sweet saigon cinnamon is ideal)

3 heaping tablespoons of pumpkin puree (or less if you prefer a more subtle taste)

a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds or a pinch of sea salt

optional – a dash of your favorite sweetener (to taste)

Directions:

Pour the oats and the water into a microwave-safe bowl, and heat until oats are creamy and water is absorbed

Stir in chia seeds while it’s still hot.  They will absorb the water and thicken the oatmeal

Mix in the pumpkin

Mix in the cinnamon

Top with pumpkin seeds (or mix in a pinch of sea salt) then add your favorite sweetener to taste pumpkin-pie-oatmeal_2
