This one is really simple, you can easily make it on a weekday morning. It also screams “fall!” and the fiber it contains will fill you up for longer then some other breakfast choices. This will most likely prevent you from reaching for a unhealthy mid-morning snack. As a side note, be careful when choosing a store-bought pumpkin butter. They can be very high in sugar, very unnecessarily. Mine is 5g sugar per tablespoon with only 4 ingredients, which is acceptable, but feel free to make your own or use canned pumpkin with a bit of brown sugar to substitute. Enjoy :)
