When I first learned about this awesome peanut butter pumpkin duo, I quickly became obsessed. For weeks upon weeks I would throw it in my oatmeal, spread it on toast, or just eat it by the spoon. I couldn’t even eat apples without the stuff. Eventually, I took a hiatus from this addictive behavior; but now I’m back, full force. Who knew that a simple mixture of canned pumpkin, peanut butter, honey and cinnamon could be such a delicious and healthy treat?

I can’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe before now. The only reason I can think of is that I was incessantly posting oatmeal recipes during my peanut butter-pumpkin obsession, and so I may have thought to give my readers a break from all things oatmeal. Unfortunately, this oatmeal just didn’t make the cut beforehand. So here it is….
