Creamy Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal & A Keurig Giveaway (NOW CLOSED)

Pin It PIN IT!

DC, you are a big ol’ fail whale. Remember how you freaked out because you thought we were going to get 14 feet of snow and in reality, we just got slushy rain? Oh, of course you do, it was yesterday! Basically, the government shut down and everyone thought the world was ending because it flaked a smidgen. Sometimes, I just find it so comical to live here. The snow may have missed us but it was still really frigid. Which is why I made a BIG ol’ bowl of this creamy pumpkin pie oatmeal for breakfast. (For only the, um, 15th week in a row).

Creamy pumpkin pie oatmeal

Even though I wish that was ice cream on top, it’s just a dab of whipped cream. Because I may be crazy, but I’m not that nuts. Although wouldn’t ice cream on oatmeal be a dream come true? Maybe in another alternate universe where excessive calories did not, in fact, make you fat.

Creamy decadent pumpkin pie oatmeal

Wouldn’t that just be awesome? You wake up, eat ice cream for breakfast, and still stay skinny! I’m imagining this world to be very futuristic. We’ll all wear those unforgiving tight silver jumpsuits, fly around on weird scooter things and have those really ugly polarized sunglasses with the goggle like bands to keep them on your head. You have to know what I’m talking about? And all the women have this bizarre purple hair? Wouldn’t that be a dream. We could eat bowls of this A-FREAKING-MAZING creamy pumpkin pie oatmeal with all the ice cream in the world and not even bloat. Oh such a world.

Oh, and speaking of coffee, I have an awesome giveaway for y’all! Just scroll a wee bit down for the details! In the meantime, GO GET THIS RECIPE. Print it. Frame it. Laminate it.

    I eat oatmeal every morning! My favorite toppings are fresh cranberries with maple syrup and cinnamon. Cook the cranberries with the oatmeal so they burst and are soft by the time the oatmeal is ready to eat.

    Every morning, I either eat oatmeal or a whole grain cereal, with fruit and sometimes a Chobani greek yogurt cup. If only I had extra funds to make stuff like this every morning... We college kids can't afford it, haha.

    I'll be sure to give this recipe a try when I get the chance! I'm a big fan of oatmeal.

    My daughter would absolutely love you! I have to admit that Ive never put whipped cream on oatmeal, but what a decadent treat, she would definitely eat her oatmeal that day, or with ice cream? Yes, that would be a dream come true. I made a pumpkin oatmeal years ago and had totally forgotten about it. Will have to add this version into our rotation.

    I must confess sausage, egg and cheese on an english muffin is my all time fave. I've been experimenting with my own at home of late so I actually know what ingredients are in it.

    Most days, though, I end up eating some fruit and/or toast with almond butter.

    Fave breakfast would be from the Red Rock Cafe (our local breakfast eatery here in Sedona, AZ, although I do make spinach omelettes at home). When we go out for a breakfast treat, I order: spinach, mushroom, green onions and cheddar omelette; hash browns (theirs is a combination of grated sweet potato and regular potato); one pancake with maple syrup. This is a lot of calories, so basically this is all I eat for the whole day.
  86. Friday, March 8th, 2013
