It seems most people either love everything pumpkin spice or hate it with a passion. There’s always a war about it in my Facebook feed around this time every year, and people get very opinionated. I don’t really partake in the ongoing war, but I honestly could enjoy it all year round. I have even been known to make pumpkin pancakes for breakfast smack in the middle of summer, that’s just how much I love it.

It’s a cool fall day here in Maine today, so this morning I made a Pumpkin Spice Banana Oatmeal for breakfast. Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast foods because it’s quick, easy, hearty and so versatile. You can pretty much add anything you want to it, and make it sweet, or even savory. Yes, savory oatmeal is definitely a thing, and it’s amazing. I’ll share some of my savory oatmeal recipes with you another time.

I’ve made Tropical Overnight Oats, a Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Bowl, Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Oatmeal and more!

Today, I added some banana to my oatmeal. I love adding bananas to oatmeal because it makes it really thick and creamy, and it gives it a really delicious flavor. I also thought it would pair quite well with the pumpkin flavor.

This oatmeal is really easy to whip up and cooks in the microwave in just a few minutes. It’s a perfect breakfast for a cool fall morning, and leaves you feeling satisfied until lunch time rolls around.
