Pumpkin Oatmeal ft. Pumpkin Almond Butter

This oatmeal is delicious and perfect for a fall day. I make such a small batch of the almond butter because it will only last up to a week due to the pumpkin purée but I am not too sure you will have to worry about it going bad because it tastes so good! Also make sure to stir in the pumpkin spice and pumpkin purée in a separate bowl because I did not my first time around and it did not turn out well to say the least haha. I definitely recommend you guys making this for a super filling and cozy fall breakfast!
