Since Fall is in the (dusty, walnut harvest) air, I’m SO ready for pumpkin foods! Fall is my favorite time of year just so I have an excuse to consume anything pumpkin! One of my favorite ways is adding it to oatmeal for a creamy, bowl of pumpkin pie oats! Since I had some canned pumpkin leftover from my Pumpkin Pie Oat Pancakes the other day, I decided it was a good day to whip up a batch of Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal and top it with some Diamond glazed walnuts (since we are walnut growers!). It was like having dessert for breakfast!
