Pumpkin pie oatmeal

I don't love oatmeal and grains don't love me, so this is my compromise for a cool fall morning.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

1/2 C oatmeal and quinoa mix (I found this at target)
1C coconut milk from the can
1/4 C chopped pecans
1/4C coconut flakes
1/2C pumpkin purée
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 eggs
1T (or more to taste) honey or maple syrup

Optional 1 can full fat coconut milk
Honey to taste
Vanilla to taste

Cook the oats according to package instructions using the coconut milk.
When cooked, slowly add the eggs while stirring really well. If you're too slow or don't mix enough, you will make scrambled eggs.
Add your pecans, coconut, and pumpkin.
Add pumpkin pie spice.
Add honey or maple to taste and enjoy!
Top with coconut whipped cream if you want.
To make the cream, pop a can of full fat coconut milk into the fridge overnight. The next day, skim off the cream from the top of the can and leave the watery part. Add a little honey and vanilla to it and whip with an electric mixer or immersion blender until it's stiff.
