4 Delicious Pumpkin Recipes for Breakfast

After making all that pumpkin puree a few days ago, I naturally started thinking of other things I could do with it and came up with these delicious breakfast ideas.

And given that Dawn is becoming known as The Pumpkin Cake Lady because of her Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake, I might as well carry on with the pumpkin theme. ‘Tis the season, after all! ;)

Pumpkin Pancakes

In a medium bowl, cream together:

2  eggs
Then add:
2 cups  flour
2 Tbsp.  baking powder
1 Tbsp.  cinnamon
1/2 tsp.  nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cloves

Mix together and add about 1 cup milk or water to desired consistency.

Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat and melt 1 Tbsp. oil.

1 cup  milk or milk alternative
1-2 Tbsp.  honey or real maple syrup

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

In a small saucepan combine:
2 1/2 cups  water
1 cup  rolled oats

Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer. Stir occasionally, until you reach desired consistency, about 3-5 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in:
1/3 cup  pumpkin puree
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp.  vanilla
1/4  nutmeg

Optional toppings to sprinkle on top:
pecans

Pumpkin Overnight Oats

These overnight oats are like pumpkin pie in a jar! Making this recipe the night before gives you a quick and healthy breakfast on the go. This will keep several days in the fridge, so you can prepare for a few days at a time.

Mix together in a small bowl:
1/2 cup  milk (or milk alternative)
1/3 cup  yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1/3 cup  pumpkin
2 Tbsp.  maple syrup
1/2 tsp.  vanilla

2/3 cup  rolled oats
1 Tbsp.  chia seeds (optional)
1/2 tsp.  cinnamon
dash  nutmeg

Divide into two small glass jars and top with pecans, coconut and/or raisins, or anything you like.

Allow jars to sit in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight and they’re ready to go!

Serves 2

So there you have it, four ideas for adding a bit of pumpkin to your morning. :)

Enjoy!
