Looking for a healthy, high-fiber breakfast to fuel you up as the weather starts to cool? Try this fall-inspired hot oatmeal recipe. It’s full of autumnal flavours from pumpkin to nutmeg to fresh pomegranate seeds. Make sure to purchase canned pumpkin puree (which is just pure pumpkin) and not pumpkin pie filling (which is loaded with sugar). If you don’t have any nutmeg on hand, that’s okay. You can leave it out and play around with the seasoning mix and toppings to create other tasty flavour combinations.

1 cup(s)

Uncooked rolled oats
