Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal

Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
Well hello Fall!!  Yesterday made fall official for the year 2015, this time of the year I start to focus on end of the year goals life, business, family, fitness, and all the things that fall between the cracks of the day.  Three weeks ago my son start preschool and of course like any mom will tell you somewhere I blink and he want from needing help with things to being a little man.  I'm thankful he is doing well, change is hard for him.  The kids go a few mornings a week to childcare so that I can work for our traditional business and they truly enjoy it.  However getting out the door in the morning is a challenge!  Someone (out of three kids) is always crying, someone does not like what is for breakfast, someone needs SOMETHING!!  So when I came across this fall recipe I wanted to give it a try, BOTH kids loved it and asked for more.  I personally like it because it falls into the 21 day fix meal plan.  If you're someone that follows this system this recipe would could for one yellow per serving and half a blue container.   The recipe makes 12 servings also I was able to make this recipe from start finish in TEN MINUTES!!  I used walnuts because that was the nut I had on hand in the house, pecans are a sweeter nut.
