Fall is finally here, and people are celebrating! From going apple picking to wearing cozy sweaters, people commemorate the change in weather in many different ways. I like to do it with food. Adding spices like cinnamon and nutmeg to my recipes adds an much-needed element of fall to my diet. 

Starting the day with a warm bowl of oatmeal is a must, especially once the weather hits the low 60's and the leaves start changing color. Oatmeal, however, isn't always the most filling. This fall oatmeal recipe a quick and easy way to amp up your breakfast as the leaves change color and the temperature slowly drops.

This recipe is not only easy and quick, but also tastes really good! Unlike oatmeal by itself, this will actually keep you full until  lunch time. Want to make it even better? Enjoy your fall oatmeal with a warm cup of apple cider. I personally can't think of a better way to start an autumn morning.
