Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal + recipe | Glitter & Grace Blog #fallrecipe #pumpkin #oatmeal

It’s officially fall! I’m so excited for the new season. I can’t wait to wear cozy sweaters and boots to work, and spend evenings curled up in front of the fireplace with a soft blanket and hot cup of tea. Of course, I’ve also started adding pumpkin to as many meals as possible! I buy the organic canned pumpkin puree from Trader Joe’s – it’s healthy, cheap, and delicious. Plus, pumpkin is an amazing source of vitamin A and potassium. This pumpkin spice oatmeal is a go-to breakfast. It’s warm, sweet, spicy, rich, and perfectly filling – everything you could want on a cold autumn morning!
