This Vegan Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal is ready in less than 5 minutes and gives you another healthy breakfast option to make your mornings easier.
I just shared with you my Pumpkin Spice and Pecan Granola in my last post for another way you can use my favorite pumpkin spice from Primal Palate.
My memories of oatmeal were adding hot boiling water to little brown packets of dried oatmeal and spices that came in different flavors.
While store-bought oatmeal isn’t the worst thing you could buy, making it homemade is so much better.

Ingredients: Whole Grain Rolled Oats, Sugar, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Salt (source)

While it does have a very short ingredient list, which is good, where is the “pumpkin spice”? And it does contain refined sugar and salt.
This healthier version uses unrefined sugar, real organic pumpkin spice and creamy full-fat coconut milk instead of water.
And, it’s also organic, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and contains no refined sugar.
