Hello friends!

Happy Holidays! It’s almost Christmas, eeeek! I just ate some soup while watching a Christmas movie while it rained, so I’m basically loving life right now. I’m excited to share this comforting oatmeal recipe with you. Perfect for a chilly morning! And a great way to finish up leftover pumpkin from any baking adventures. (:

Here’s what you’ll need.

First, cook your oatmeal according to package directions. When nearly all the liquid has been absorbed, add your pumpkin puree and milk. I used almond milk this time because we were out of regular milk, but you can use whatever you prefer! Stir it up!

Then, add your sugar and spices.

Stir to mix and that’s it! Add some chopped pecans, and you have a filling and tasty breakfast. So easy!
