Pumpkin Spice Steel Cut Oatmeal


After a holiday weekend of giving thanks, I decided to end the month as I started it - with pumpkin! So before I went to bed, I added some nutty and delicious steel-cut oats to boiling water and turned off the heat. I woke to softened oats and stirred in almond milk, lots of pumpkin, spices, maple syrup, and even crystallized ginger. Soon the scent of the warm spices filled the air, and I was serving up steaming bowls of Pumpkin Spice Steel Cut Oatmeal. I topped it with some pecans, a little more ginger, and a splash of syrup and was soon loving every spoonful. This was delicious, and the perfect way to start my week.
