The Perfect Oatmeal for October

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal | 2CookinMamas

I love to have hot cereal when the mornings are chilly and it can be cream of wheat or oatmeal,just something to keep me warm inside when I take my morning jog. This particular oatmeal is one my Mom used to fix for me, although this one is also cow dairy-free since my body is not too fond of lactose.

So what did I add that would make it great for October? Yep, you guessed it, pumpkin! It gives the oats a nice pumpkiny (is that a word?) pie taste and the maple syrup adds just the right amount of sweetness. I used my own mix for pumpkin pie spice but you can just as easily use the one right off the shelf.

Enjoy & keep warm!
