(Family Features) - Mmm...hot breakfast on a cold morning. There's nothing like eating something warm and satisfying to start the day off right. Since February is Hot Breakfast Month, I thought I'd share some delicious - and nutritious - breakfast ideas to help you warm up your mornings.
My secret ingredient? Pumpkin! Not only does pumpkin add great flavor, it's also an excellent low-calorie and low-fat source of Vitamin A, and fiber in every 1/2 cup serving. That's good nutrition in every bite!
These easy-to-make pumpkin pancakes are a beautiful golden color and their puffiness makes them fun to eat. Pumpkin adds just the right touch of flavor and moistness to make these pancakes a new family favorite.
Pumpkin and maple team up to make everyday oatmeal a real treat. It's quick and easy to make, and it will fill you up and keep you satisfied all morning.
If you like warm breads or muffins in the morning, try pumpkin variations like:
- Pumpkin Nut Bread
- Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins
- Pumpkin Maple Biscuits
