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!

Banana Bread (Healthy + Refined Sugar Free)

One ingredient I always have on hand is bananas so what better to make than banana bread?! Of course it is the best to wait until the bananas are ripe and spotty because it will be the sweetest!

-1 cup rolled oats

-1/4 cup pure maple syrup

-1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

-1 tsp baking powder

-1 tsp baking soda

-1 tsp vanilla extract

-1 tsp cinnamon

-1 tsp salt

-optional: chopped walnuts or pecans & cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350F and line your pan with either parchment paper or oil of choice.

2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and pour in the pan.

3. Cut a banana in half lengthwise and lay on top.

4. Bake for 45 minutes, let cool and enjoy!
