Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pie #Choctoberfest

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert for #breakfast #recipe #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar

I like to eat this pumpkin-y chocolatey goodness warm with light whipped cream, ice cream or cool, creamy vanilla yogurt on the top. The contrast of warmth and cool sweet goodness with that lovely light crunch from the pecans make it oh that much better.

I love to ride a fine line … you know, that one where you live eating healthy with a little decadence on the side? In my life, I embrace salads and healthy stir fries and such, yet I swoon at decadent chocolate desserts . That’s me. I once paid $2 for a taco for lunch, then walked down the street to the fancy patisserie and paid $6 for a fancy chocolate dessert … and enjoyed … every … single … moment … of … BOTH!

So I rejoice whenever I can make a fancy dessert-style breakfast that could secretly double as dessert. Enter this baked oatmeal. The pumpkin and oats make it full of fiber and vitamin A and the dark chocolate adds extra healthy antioxidants, but it still comes out tasting like an amazing dessert. Maybe not quite patisserie-style, but you can relax knowing you are getting your whole grains and fiber in with a bit of protein. If you want a little extra decadence, top with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup–or a bit of light whipped cream–or even some of your favorite yogurt on top.
