Fall flavors come alive in this delicious dish.

A decadent dark chocolate pumpkin oatmeal that tastes like dessert!

Get ready, because pumpkin season is here! What better way to celebrate fall’s favorite fruit than with a batch of our Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Oatmeal? We used almond milk to cook the oats and honey to sweeten them and keep the calorie count low. Dark chocolate, fall spices, almonds, dried cherries, and pumpkin bring out decadent and filling fall flavors in this recipe. Best of all, it’s still healthy!

Make sure to use rolled oats as opposed to quick or steel-cut oats, or else the ingredients will be off. And finally, feel free to experiment with different nuts and dried fruit to add your own twist!
