Sweet potato pie oatmeal — like eating dessert for breakfast
If I could eat pie for breakfast every single morning, I totally would. I know... what would my mother say? Well, she would probably tell me to not eat pie because it's not healthy and to instead eat some oatmeal. So I took oatmeal and combined it with sweet potato pie so I could eat it for breakfast completely guilt free.
To also bump up the health factor in these oats, I added in a little flaxseed and chia seed. They are a great addition to almost any breakfast and bring a nice punch of nutrients. These oats are also great if you happen to have a few leftover baked sweet potatoes in the fridge. But don't worry if you don't — canned pumpkin can be used in their place for an equally delicious substitute.
