This simple and Healthy Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast to meal prep for a busy week for breakfast, or is great to bring to an autumn brunch!
Well, it’s officially that time again…PUMPKIN SEASON is upon us!
I will soon be making a weekly loaf of my all time favorite Pumpkin Bread, experimenting in creating a healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte, and eating bowls full of Pumpkin Chicken Chili.
To be honest, pumpkin flavored foods and treats are a newer found love for me. Growing up my mom didn’t like pumpkin, so I never had to eat it…and I just kind of thought that I didn’t like pumpkin either.
Fast forward to just a few years ago, when a client of of mine gave me a loaf of pumpkin bread for the holidays….and I LOVED it. In fact, that’s what inspired my Healthy Pumpkin Bread recipe.
I’m really excited to finally have found out that do actually love pumpkin.
I have been experimenting with all sort of recipes ever since…Have you ever done that to when you find a new food you like? It’s like you HAVE to try it a million different ways?
One of my favorites right now is actually this Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal. It’s super easy to throw everything together and it perfect for a portable breakfast for when you’re on the go!
It’s the perfect breakfast to make on Sunday morning and to enjoy all week! Yay for super easy meal prepping! 😉
I especially love it reheated and drizzled with a little bit of milk. YUMMMM!
