I'm generally a savory breakfast fan, but every once in awhile, I crave something creamy and sweet, like oatmeal. It's so warm and hearty on a fall morning, even if it's not that cold here yet. But I can't eat my oats nekkid. Sometimes, I stir in my favorite peanut butter for Dark Chocolate Dreams Oats:
I microwave 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, and a dash of salt. Then I stir in one or two tablespoons of the chocolate peanut butter after cooking. This time, it didn't seem sweet enough so I drizzled some agave over the top.
Inspired by a post from Shelby at La Belle Vegan, I tried Pumpkin Pie Oats this morning:
This was like eating pumpkin pie for breakfast, only with oats in it (which I guess seems like a rather obvious description, but sue me). I used a bit of homemade pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice), 3 tablespoons of canned pumpkin, Earth Balance, and a liberal drizzle of maple syrup. Suffice to say, I'll be eating this again in the morning.
