Banana Nut Pumpkin Oatmeal

Oatmeal makes for a perfect and cozy breakfast on a cool fall or winter morning. This twist on classic oatmeal not only makes it really tasty, but also nutritious. The added almond butter brings healthy fat and some protein to the recipe, while the banana brings potassium, and the pumpkin brings fiber. And to finish off the recipe– a dash of pumpkin pie spice makes it even tastier!
To mix it up try adding cashew or peanut butter in place of almond butter, or try adding cinnamon instead of pumpkin pie spice.
