Creamy Pumpkin Oat Bran Porridge

Creamy Pumpkin Oat Bran PorridgeHot breakfast cereal may sound like the healthy and responsible choice in the morning, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be equally delicious!  It’s all about the add-ins (obviously) and in the fall & winter months, the options are really endless.  I love my oatmeal, oat bran, etc. with tons of warm spices and something special like pumpkin puree or apple butter.  It takes an otherwise average breakfast and turns it into something that feels like a treat.  Creamy Pumpkin Oat Bran PorridgeCreamy Pumpkin Oat Bran PorridgecontributorByline_Temporary_JuliaGartland

    yum! I just make a pumpkin oatmeal bake last night – but mine was prepared in the oven and then sliced into squares for the week. This looks delish thanks for sharing!

    This looks so delicious! I use a spoonful of almond butter or apple butter in my oatmeal — makes it so creamy and decadent.
