Pumpkin Spice Latte Protein Oatmeal

It’s that wonderful time of year. September brought pumpkin spice back into our lives. So far the new ones I’ve seen this year are:

  • Pumpkin spice poptarts
  • Pumpkin spice cheerio’s
  • Pumpkin spice krispy kreme donuts
  • Pumpkin spice pretzels

…and probably a dozen other things I can’t remember off the top of my head. Seriously I think we should rename the seasons. They would go like this: “Spring, Summer, Pumpkin Spice, Winter”

While Justin always refers to it as being “basic” to enjoy pumpkin spice things in the fall (meaning we’re all just pumpkin band-wagoners). No, that’s not so much the case. I actually like pumpkin things but I don’t buy all these junky treats. I make my own with actual pumpkin and natural sweetener. Enter pumpkin spice latté protein oatmeal.

We all know protein oatmeal is a go-to breakfast of mine. I need to carb up in the mornings and this is done easily with oatmeal. One morning I got a little crazy and cooked my oatmeal in my coffee, stirred some pumpkin in with the protein powder and enjoy every large bite I took of it. And that was just the beginning of this wonderful pumpkin spice season. Get ready for more pumpkin recipes…
