Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I made chocolate banana ice cream last night! But since I have posts written for the future til December, you probably won’t see a post about that until…December. Or next year. Har har. Sorry. Just know¬† that it was good, took 20 minutes, and only required 4 ingredients. Yepyep. Don’t hate.

I feel like pumpkin is a super fall-like thing to have, and having hot oatmeal for a meal is pretty awesome on cold days (the same goes for hot soups <3 ). You can throw in chopped pecans or walnuts in here and it’d probably be even better, but those are really expensive and I’m cheap, so I put a banana in instead. Yay for fruit!

-1/2 cup pumpkin puree
