Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
This delicious oatmeal is especially satisfying on cold mornings! In fact, it feels like you’re eating pie for breakfast!
But don’t worry, it’s also incredibly nutritious. Pumpkins are packed with nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C & potassium. And oatmeal is a great source of fiber, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, zinc & manganese.
Keep in mind that Trader Joe’s canned Organic Pumpkin is a seasonal item, so be sure to stock up whenever you see it on the shelves. You won’t want to wait another year before your next pumpkin fix!
