pumpkin pie for breakfast?!!

oh. my.god.

oh. my . GOD.

wow. just wow. and its vegan!

i woke up around 4:30 this morning since i have a hard time sleeping so i was feeling pretty low so i needed some sort of pick me up for breakfast which included a HUGE delicious peach and my new masterpiece, the pumpkin pie oatmeal
pumpkin pie oatmeal recipe:
  • 1/2 a cup of uncooked oats, (i use a packet of oats with flax)
  • 2/3 cups of almond milk ( i add a tsp of water along with this, i like my oatmeal soupy)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • sweetener ( i use 3 equal packets)
  • 1/8 tsp of pumpkin spice
  • 1/8 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp tofutti cream cheese

you can cook this according to how you like your oatmeal, i put mine in for about 2 minutes usually but for this i put it in for 2 minutes and 30 seconds

the thing about this oatmeal, compared to other pumpkin pie vegan oatmeal is the cream cheese, it defnitley adds a more creamy pie like taste, especially if you let it sit for 5 minutes the texture gets thicker. it really does taste like pumpkin pie and not just pumpkin with some oatmeal!

it was amazing. its such a good way of starting out fall. its vegan, and a very healthy alternative to regular pumpkin pie!
or if you just have a crazy pumpkin craving like i do its a simple quick fix!

till next time!
