Feeling all the Fall vibes these days and like every other basic girl out there I LOVE everything pumpkin! So here is my Scrounged up fall oatmeal that is so easy and will last you the entire week. Make a big batch on Monday and eat it throughout the week. Oatmeal doesn't have to be just for breakfast, who says you can't eat it for lunch or dinner too?! I sure do!

If you don't have these exact ingredients, Scrounge with the things you have at home! You may end up creating something even better!
If you don't have steel cut oats, use rolled oats and use the stove top cooking instructions
If you don't pumpkin spice, use nutmeg or do without
If you don't have cinnamon use pumpkin spice (double up on it) or do without
If you don't have vanilla extract, try almond extract or do without
If you don't have pure maple syrup, use honey, agave or do without
I n g r e d i e n t s
1 cup steel cut oats
2/3 cup pumpkin purée
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp pure maple syrup
unsweetened coconut flakes
D i r e c t i o n s
Follow directions on the steel cut oats packaging.
When there are 5 mins left of the oats cooking, add pumpkin purée along with the rest of the ingredients: pumpkin spice, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. Stir until well combined.
Continue to let cook for the remaining 5 minutes, stir as needed.
Serve oats in bowl and add desired toppings.
Store any leftover oats in the fridge and eat throughout the remainder of the week by heating up in the microwave for about 1 minute.
