I was feeling a little creative in the kitchen this morning so I threw together a little something new – baked oatcakes with a quick pumpkin sauce.

Of course, breakfast wouldn’t be breakfast without coffee!

Can you tell I’m feeling festive? Oh yes, the Christmas decorations are slowing emerging from storage (and ok, I may have picked up a new item or two). :)

Anywho, the oatcakes were just ok (so I won’t be sharing the recipe…yet), but the pumpkin sauce could become a new favorite! I made the sauce using a mere 3 ingredients: canned pumpkin, milk, and maple syrup. The reason I like it is because it’s new and different, more healthful (hello veggie serving!), and not nearly as sweet as straight-up maple syrup would be. Besides being healthy, fun, and only using a couple ingredients you could easily have in your pantry, it’s also super quick!

I just added a little of that homemade maple cinnamon granola on top for some extra crunch.

    I am definitely going to try this- great idea!

    P.S. How can you be this creative in the morning? I’m good at creative meals in the evening when I’m fully awake, but you get new recipes done before even going to work? You’re a kitchen ninja!

    Ooooh, I’m definitely going to have to try out this pumpkin sauce. I’m not a *huge* fan of maple syrup and I think this would be a great alternative for me :)

    I was looking for a sauce to go over some muffin sized cheesecakes. This looks easy enough and hope it helps cut the sweetness of the cheesecake. Thanks for posting!
