Happy Humpday friends!

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.
