A satisfying and hearty breakfast that is perfect for chilly fall mornings. The combination of spices, pumpkin, and a touch of sweetness from the banana really warm you from the inside when you start your day with this meal.
A few of you asked me to share my pumpkin egg white oatmeal recipe with you after posting quite a few Instagram of this fabulous fall breakfast. I have to admit, I’ve had the pictures taken for a couple of weeks now, I just needed to block out the time to WRITE everything down for you
This has been a favorite fall breakfast this year, and I can honestly say that I make it once a week (at least!) I use bananas to slightly sweeten the pumpkin and oatmeal without adding refined sugar, but it’s definitely not overly sweet. I find that if I’m craving something sweeter or if someone likes their oats with more sweetness, adding raisins on top is perfect!
I promise, you cannot taste the egg whites in this breakfast and it will FILL YOU UP! When I eat this breakfast, I can usually power through until lunch with minimal snackage <—always a good thing! I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!
