Fall is here in full force which leaves us craving hearty warm comfort foods. I love oatmeal for breakfast so I created this delicious version using unprocessed whole oats (also known as oat groats). Canned pumpkin keeps the recipe simple. Warm and inviting this dish tastes a bit like pumpkin pie.
Time saving tip: This recipe can be made ahead of time and pre-portioned into single serving bowls for a quick heat and eat breakfast during the week.
