Citrusy Pumpkin Oatmeal with Cranberries

It has been almost 3 months since my last oatmeal recipe here on Vegan Yack Attack, and if you’ve been following me for a while you know that this is crazy. I guess it does make sense, because that was at the beginning of Summer; but, now I bring oatmeal back to you with a bang! Okay, maybe not a literal bang, but this oatmeal has some crazy-good flavors in it and it was the perfect thing to fill me up this morning. Especially after making a fresh batch of almond milk (always messy, as seen below, and with only almonds and water), and realizing that my boyfriend may have gotten me sick. :/

Maybe it’s better that I was feeling slightly out of it this morning, or else I wouldn’t have had a chance to enjoy this creamy, citrusy goodness in a bowl. At first, it tasted almost like a Pumpkin Orange Creamsicle, then you add the cranberry and a touch of cinnamon to the mix and it really brings it home. I know that I’ll be making this for breakfast again, very soon.

If I try it out in the slow cooker tonight, I might be able to enjoy some in the morning before my garage sale! Oy.. I don’t think I’m ready for it. 😉

This oatmeals sounds so good - during the winter I eat so much oatmeal and get bored with the same old stuff, so this would be a fantastic way to switch things up... I'm featuring this post as part of Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution) and thanks for making me drool!
