Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Pie

This Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Pie recipe by Gluten Free Yumms is made with walnuts, pumpkin, chia and sunflower seeds, pumpkin and gluten-free rolled oats. This breakfast pie is not sweet, at all. There’s no sugar added unless you drizzle a little maple syrup over the top. Which the recipe author highly recommends. This is a great make ahead recipe and pulled out a slice out each morning.
