PUMPKIN PEAR OATMEAL- Vegan, Gluten-Free & Refined Sugar-Free

I’ve been in a serious oatmeal craze lately. I’ve been eating it every day for breakfast and have been fighting the urge to eat it for dinner too. It’s my ultimate fall comfort food- creamy, warm and flavoured however I like.

Pumpkin Pear Oatmeal

Pumpkin is my new favourite thing to add to oatmeal because it makes it even more creamy! Just when I thought oatmeal couldn’t get any better 🙂 For this recipe I added shredded pear to add extra natural sweetness and also some texture. Feel free to throw some raisins in too for an even more fantastic texture experience.

Another bonus of adding pumpkin to your oatmeal is the added nutrition. By adding this seasonal veggie to your morning porridge you’re boosting your daily intake of vitamins A, C and E, as well as your intake of calcium, copper, potassium and phosphorus.

But most importantly, it’s down right delicious!
