I'm so far behind on this whole oatmeal craze, especially the pumpkin oatmeal craze. But...I've finally joined the cool kids and made my own. And now I wonder what I was waiting for! This is a delicious, filling and nutritious way to start the day and I'm sure I'll be converting to oatmeal for breakfast for the entire winter.
