Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal

Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal ~ Super easy, super simple & super tasty.  A big bowl of this oatmeal is a perfect way to start your day on these cold autumn mornings.

I was craving big bowls of hot oatmeal this weekend.  Luckily, I still had some canned pumpkin in the fridge, left over from making the Cranberry-Pumpkin Oat Breakfast Cookies, so I decided to try using some in my morning cooked oatmeal.  Good idea!  I really enjoyed the extra flavor the pumpkin & other goodies added to the oatmeal. Breakfast was ready in under 5 minutes, start to finish.  Great for when I'm in a hurry or just really, really hungry.  I'll be making this often while I'm in the pumpkin mood.  Hope you like this flavor combo too.  Enjoy!
