Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal with Toasted Pecans

This breakfast is downright decadent–like a pumpkin pie in a bowl. Don’t let its sumptuousness rob you of pleasure though, this oatmeal is super-healthy too. It’s loaded with fiber from the pumpkin and whole grain goodness from the oats.

1 cup canned pumpkin (half a 15-ounce can)

  2. Love this.

    I made a huge pot of steel cut oats for breakfast this morning, ate a little, and stuck the rest in the fridge. I’m so proud of myself for taking the 25 minutes to invest in a several days of future hot breakfasts. Tomorrow will be easy-peasy!

  3. Cheryl . . . Good for you! It is a great investment. We had some leftovers (plain, not from this recipe) last night even, sauteed with diced sweet potato, kale and sausage. So good.

    Brenda . . . You nailed the description. Enjoy!
