Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

This pumpkin pie oatmeal is a great make ahead baked oatmeal to make all fall and winter. It has all the delicious flavors of your favorite pumpkin pie while still providing great nutritional value to start your morning off right.

I’ve been doing a lot of work away from the kitchen: planting my fall garden (broccoli, brussel sprouts, swiss chard, red cabbage, spinach, arugula, and beets), picking dozens and dozens of tomatoes – they are still coming!, planting bulbs for the coming spring (yellow & orange tulips, narcissus, and allium) to add to the daffodils and blue hyacinth I planted last year, and staining the new wood boarder/bench around the kids play area.

It’s been a great week to be outside, especially in the morning and evening because it’s September and that means Fall is on it’s way!

With all the outdoor work I’ve been doing, I have needed a tasty and hearty breakfast.

Something that will stick with me and give me energy to work through my to-do list. And work through have I done!

I’ve never been much of a cold cereal person in the mornings. I prefer muffins, pancakes, waffles, coffee cake, granola with fruit and yogurt. Now that the mornings are cooling off, oatmeal sounds good again too. I love oatmeal when it’s done right.

Otherwise it’s just a gag inducing experience. I like oatmeal with lots of flavor and preferably a mixture of textures. I like it even more when it tastes like dessert. This recipe definitely fits those requirements.
