Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Its fall! Its time for pumpkin everything! I already did a post on Pumpkin Spice Latte Oatmeal. If you're not much of a coffee fan, but love pumpkin, this recipe is for you :)

Prep Time: 5 min

Ingredients (Serves 1):
  1. 1/2 cup Old-Fashioned (Rolled) Oats
  2. 1 cup Almond Milk (Unsweetened Vanilla) 
  3. 1/2 cup Canned Pumpkin puree
  4. 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  5. 1 tbsp Slivered Almonds
  6. 1 tsp Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)
  7. 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 
  8. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  9. 1 tbsp Maple syrup (optional, to taste)

Mix almond milk (or any other non-dairy milk), oats, Pumpkin puree, almonds and Chia seeds in a microwave safe bowl. I usually use a large glass measuring cup. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes. Remove carefully. Add pumpkin pie spice* and vanilla extract (and maple syrup, to taste). Mix well. Transfer to a bowl, add another splash of milk, top off with pepitas and enjoy!!

*Pumpkin pie spice is basically a mix of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. If you don't have the mix, feel free to use the individual spices to taste :)
