Fall is in the air!
And it makes this girl happy. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Forget that it is still 80-somethin’ degrees outside and the leaves on the maple trees are stubbornly staying green. My calendar says September. Which means that I am allowed to pull out the comfy sweaters, spend an absurd amount of money on cute pumpkins at World Market, and bake with pumpkin spice. Guys, I can’t even explain it. I wake up in August and it’s just waking up like any other day. I wake up in September or October and the day is better merely by virtue of being September. So plop me down at the table with a warm pumpkin spice oat cup, so that I can enjoy the crisp mornings while they last!
Pumpkin Spice Oat Cups
Any game of thrones fans out there? Pretty sure the best meme I’ve ever seen was Ned Stark warning that “pumpkin spice everything is coming.” #truth.
These pumpkin spice oat cups are my new fall obsession. They are similar to baked oatmeal–a very moist oat cup that I usually eat with a fork. In the past week, I’ve had these for breakfast approximately six times and for a couple snacks. But ees o-k! Want to know why??? Because these oat cups are:
- refined sugar free
- banana – points for vitamins and minerals!
- pumpkin – points for heart health!
And yes, I know. These would be even healthier without chocolate chips. But seriously??? Do yourself a solid and add some. There are even refined sugar free chocolate chips out there if you want to feel EXTRA okay with it. Now excuse me while I go wrap myself in a cozy blanket and enjoy the breezy balcony with a warm pumpkin spice oat cup.
