Nothing says fall like pumpkins.  You can find pumpkins in just about everything this time of year – pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkins smoothies, etc.  So, I thought I would join the ranks and add some pumpkin flavor to our morning oatmeal.  As the weather gets cooler, I like to make warm breakfasts, particularly for my boys.  Oatmeal is a great complex carb that helps them feel fuller longer.  

Sometimes, though, oatmeal can taste bland and boring.  So to jazz it up a little, I simply cooked the oats in almond milk (to make them creamier), added a few tablespoons of maple syrup, and a few sprinkles of pumpkin pie spice.  I knew it was a hit when my very picky youngest son asked for seconds!

What are y’all eating for breakfast during these cooler, fall days?  I’d love your ideas for when I get in those breakfast ruts!
