I had half a can of pumpkin puree left over from another pumpkin recipe I was making so I stirred a couple tablespoons in with my morning oatmeal, added a few spices, and created my new favorite oatmeal.
If you like pumpkin pie and think it would make a great breakfast, you’re gonna want to try this pumpkin pie oatmeal!
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup water (sub 1/2 cup of your favorite nut milk for extra creaminess)
3 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg and ginger
pinch of salt
1-2 tbsp maple syrup
2-3 tbsp nut milk
1/4 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
Combine oats, water, pumpkin, and spices in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Once oats begin to boil, turn heat down low and stir. Let simmer for a few more minutes, stirring occasionally, until water has evaporated and oats are cooked all the way through. Remove from heat and serve up immediately.
Top with maple syrup, nut milk, and pecans.
