It’s Pumpkin Week here and we’re starting things off with this new-to-us Pumpkin Oatmeal recipe. It was very simple to make — and it was very filling, too. Best of all, it is packed with lots of nutrition… the perfect way to start off a crisp fall morning.
The original recipe just made one serving, but it can be easily adapted for a larger crowd by tripling, quadrupling it — or multiplying it by even more.
Here’s how I tweaked the original recipe:
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal For One
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup whole milk (can also use skim, almond, or rice milk)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
- Brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup
Mix oats, milk, water, and spices together in a small saucepan on the stove. Bring to slow simmer. Stir in the pumpkin and cook until done, approximately 3-4 minutes.
Sprinkle with sugar or drizzle with honey or maple syrup and serve warm with milk.
Serves 1. Recipe slightly adapted from Peak 313.
