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. 😉

    • Thank you! That means a lot! 😀 And yes, please do. 😉

  1. That looks yummy. I think I’ll try it out those ingredients with my weekly batch of steel cut oats!

    • I may need to, as well! I have a bag of steel cut oats glaring at me, in the pantry. ha ha

  2. Thank you for this! I made a pumpkin oatmeal the other day that was just gross. I really screwed that one up. I’m going to give it another try, but using this recipe. 🙂

  3. I’ll have to make this while my bread is baking in the oven before work (3 am, whew). I never thought of putting pumpkin puree in my oatmeal before. Grand idea. Terrific photographs, as always.

    • 3am!? That’s craziness! I certainly do not envy you, although fresh bread and oatmeal sound amazing, right now. And thank you for the kind words!

  4. Ok I’ve tried commenting 3 times….this flavor combo looks awesome …fighting off Logan’s cold via essential oils this week….

    • Thank you, so much! I was really happy with how they turned out. And Happy Vegan MoFo to you, as well! 😀

  5. 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!
