This Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal makes the perfect healthy and nutritious breakfast. Full of pumpkin goodness will keep you cozy and warm all season long. 

I was in New York last week for a couple of days and couldn’t leave before having breakfast at one of my favorite spots. Located in Greenwich Village, Oatmeals is the first Oatmeal Bar. They offer a “build-your-own” oatmeal experience but also have their own signature bowls. Which I have to admit some of the combinations are pretty eccentric but I have tried different ones and all of them are great.

This time they had their season especial which is “pumpkin pie” and of course I couldn’t resist. I mean an oatmeal bowl that tastes like pumpkin pie and is also nutritious, who can resists. If you are not a big fan of oatmeal you are probably thinking is she crazy? What could be so special about an oatmeal restaurant? I mean oats cost pennies to make at home, take 2 minutes to cook and are not that good. Well, I am telling you, you need to give it a try. I can promise you won’t regret it.

Anyway since they don’t have Oatmeals in D.C. I decided to do a copycat version of their Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal. I loved how it turned out and it literally took me 10 minutes top. I didn’t add any nut butter to mine but I think adding walnut or almond butter would also work great.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Substitutes

Brown Sugar- You can substitute brown sugar for maple syrup and it will also work great. You could also use other sweeteners of your choice but if you are looking for those warm cozy fall flavors definitely stick to any of these two.

Pumpkin- You can substitute the pumpkin for sweet potato although it would be called pumpkin pie anymore. But if you are not a pumpkin fan and prefer sweet potato pie instead this is a great option.

Add-Ons- You can add some granola to give it a little crunch. Or some chocolate chips to give it a nice spin. You can also top with whipped cream if you are not on the dairy-free team.
