Warm Hearty Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal Bowls

Warm Hearty Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal Bowls

I think fall and I think what can I make with pumpkin A hearty healthy breakfast in the fall needs some additional fall ingredients such as pumpkin. Two of my favorite things about fall….the brilliant leaves against sunny gray skies….and the classic fall flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, the new fresh crop of apples, and cranberries.  Just makes me think cozy fires and hanging around with friends and family. It’s fun for me just seeing what’s in the kitchen and experimenting with new flavor profiles.  This is one of those recipes with things always in the pantry but a new combo to please the palate.  Super simple, easy and quick…all things you love for a weekday morning recipe. One of my prerequisites creating a new recipe is nutritional value.  If we fill with food lacking what our body needs, we will wind up eating more later because our body isn’t satisfied and that promotes overweight.  The addition of the pumpkin in this recipe boosted our daily intake of Vitamin A, C, iron, B6. and magnesium.

Do this the night before, days ahead or even weeks ahead. This is also a nice gift mix to bring with you too  (dress up the packing and attach instructions for finishing and baking) I often use those quart size deli containers since I have so many I’ve saved with Chinese takeout over the years.  Love those containers for portioning and storing soup stocks, marina and other sauces also. These muffins are perfect on their own or slathered
