I am reeeeally hoping you guys are in on this pumpkin game as much as I am!  I don’t think of myself as an overly obsessed with pumpkin/ pumpkin spice person, but every year this time comes and I find myself adding pumpkin to everything and LOVING IT!  I think it is because I really only end up using it for 2 months of the year then it goes away, and I am a sucker for a limited time only kind of situation!  So after making 2 other kinds of Sweet Potat-“Oats” in my day – original and apple cinnamon – it was time to pumpkinfy it!  My first two were Whole30 compliant because bananas naturally sweeten the first one and apples sweetened the second, but pumpkin isn’t naturally super sweet!  So I added a little maple syrup to this one to make it perfect.  You could probably leave it out but trust – it adds a lot to this!

Now let’s talk about something I know I’ll get questions on – protein! Most people, me included, love protein at breakfast.  So to add some to this I love drizzling it with nut butter and/or adding nuts on top. I also think adding some vanilla protein powder to this would be fabulous.  But I also treat it like oats and use it as a comforting and tasty breakfast that you may or may not need a snack a couple hours after. Just being real!  Either way it is deeelish and also super kid friendly!  Okay I wanted to get this recipe out to you so not much more to touch on – as I write this while I get my oil changed and think it’s almost ready!  Happy happy Friday!!
