Vegan Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

vegan refined sugar free breakfast recipe

Have you ever found yourself with leftover canned pumpkin and no idea what to do with it? That’s exactly how this comforting Fall breakfast recipe was born.

My mom and I were talking about how annoying it is to have a small amount of canned pumpkin leftover after making something seasonal like Pumpkin Bread, and I suggested that she make this for breakfast as soon as possible!

I told her it’s creamy oatmeal made with canned pumpkin, cinnamon and Fall spices, lightly sweetened with dates and topped with a decadent drizzle of almond butter and not only is it delicious and hearty, but it’s a great way to use up canned pumpkin so that nothing goes to waste.

Tasty and eco-friendly. Best of both worlds, right?

I hope you’ll make this Date Sweetened Pumpkin Oatmeal on a chilly Autumn morning. It tastes like Fall in the very best way and goes perfectly with a cozy cup of coffee.
