Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Days in Singapore have still been warm… but in the mornings, we’ve been getting a hint of rain – chilly air and a little wind; just enough to warrant a sweater on my morning walks. By mid-day, we’re back to sunny and sweaty weather, but I’ve been cherishing these cooler mornings. They are my “me” time – the time where I take a long walk, enjoy the breeze, do a meditation or go to yoga class, and then delve into one of my favourite parts of my work day: photographing.

The cloudy mornings are my preferred time to take photos, since the clouds are a natural diffuser, giving photos beautifully soft & diffused light. These cloudy mornings are also the perfect time for me to cozy up with a warm bowl of this vegan pumpkin pie oatmeal and pretend that it’s not going to get into the high 70s later that day. Whether it is pumpkin season or not, I plan to have this bowl of oatmeal every single day of the year. I mean who wouldn’t want pie for breakfast? that’s what I wanna know…

When you love to sleep in as much as I do, there’s very little time to lay out a gourmet breakfast. That’s why I appreciate fast and easy recipes that are also hearty and good for the soul. This simple pumpkin pie oatmeal will soon become one of your favorites! With all the flavours of pumpkin pie stirred into a creamy bowl of oatmeal, this quick and easy pumpkin pie oatmeal is my one of my favourite oatmeal. It’s hard to beat a hot breakfast that can be on the table in less than 15 minutes. Really. With just 15 minutes, how can you skip breakfast?

Are you wondering how this could the best bowl of pumpkin oats ever? It is a lofty statement, but this oatmeal is the best way to sneak in a variation of one of my favourite desserts in the a.m. hours without feeling any kinds of guilty. Mornings aren’t for everyone, especially yours truly (ahem) but this spicy, warm pumpkin pie oatmeal is worth getting up for! Creamy pumpkin paired with hearty oats and pumpkin pie spice topped with date syrup, dark chocolate, dried fruits & chopped nuts turns an ordinary bowl of oatmeal into a party for the mouth.

This is my standard breakfast oatmeal pumpkin-ified. Because I wanted to give you some real food for real days, not a big layer cake or a pie recipe that only has any business being made 1 or 2 days out of the year. Nothing wrong with those - I love feast day food but I’m in a practical mood these days. Maybe it is because I'm a young adult now, and that’s how that cookie crumbles haha!

So go build a fire, put on a cozy sweater and cable-knit socks, jump in a pile of burnished leaves, fill every corner of your home with decorative heirloom gourds, but eat this before you do. Cause it is Monday, and that gives us all permission to get a little basic.
