The feature of this Pecan Pie Oatmeal is the roasted pecans. And when paired with the brown sugar and cinnamon, this dish resembles a decadent pecan pie, only in a healthy breakfast form!
I think we have all figured out my love of oatmeal. There’s Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal, Snickerdoodle Oatmeal, Blueberries & Cream Oatmeal, I could keep going.. Now there’s a Pecan Pie Oatmeal! Filled and topped with crunchy, roasted pecans.
Now, when I say toasted pecans I naturally mean that they should be covered in butter and tossed with just a bit of salt. Because..well..why not. Most things are better with butter and salt. Am I right? My skinny jeans may not agree with that fact, but they’re biased. Besides a little indulgence here and there is ok. I’m still talking about oatmeal. And my box of oatmeal says it’s heart healthy, so I think I’m on the right track. But if you’re not feeling the butter today, or you happen to be out, you can absolutely just toss them in a skillet and toast them on their own. They’re still scrumptious.
I’m hoping y’all are with me on the oatmeal obsession. I feel that I still have a lot more oatmeal recipes left in me bursting to come out.
