Hello, my beautiful (and handsome) friends!
And what a great DAY it is! I am in SUCH a good mood right now after reading through all your warm comments on yesterday’s post! I’m seriously grinning from ear-to-ear right now! So, I brought something today to help show my thanks…
It’s creamy…it’s decadent…and it’s guaranteed to help you achieve that winter glow we foodies love so much! 😉
That’s right, I’m breaking out the pumpkin again…in FEBRUARY!
But this time, instead of a frozen treat, you have to enjoy while bundled under every single blanket in the house (+ mittens), this bowl of goodness will help you shake off the chill from this relentless winter weather in NO time!
Based off my beloved French Toast Oats, these Pumpkin Custard Oats are filled with the flavors of butter and maple annnnnnnd a WHOLE EGG!
Trust me people, this is THE best way to make thick and creamy stove top oats. And with the added protein and healthy fats from the egg, they’ll keep you satisfied for hours! Without the Greek yogurt topping, they’re completely dairy-free and with certified gluten-free oats, all you sensitive sistahs (and brothas) can enjoy it too! As for my vegan friends, please see THIS bowl of yum!
Alright, everyone presented and accounted for? Let’s proceed! 😀
