Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Just want to share my favorite breakfast as of late.

It’s fall and pumpkin is everywhere- from the patches to my table to my front porch to my fridge- I can’t get enough right now.

So- I thought it’d be only appropriate to add it to my morning bowl of oatmeal. With the classic pumpkin pie spices- cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger…
Topped with brown sugar, cold milk, walnuts, and banana— I present to you:

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal


  • 1/2 cup oats (regular classic, not quick cooking)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tbs pureed pumpkin (pure- from the can- NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
  • top with: milk, brown sugar, walnuts, banana- your choice really.
Directions: Add oats, water, and pumpkin to a pot and bring to a boil, then simmer and stir pretty consistently for 5 minutes at the least. The more the better. You may have to add a bit of water at some point. It’s an art, not a science here. Add your spices while stirring. It will smell magical- like sugar and spice and everything nice- and like fall. Pour into a bowl and top to your heart’s desire- but the cold milk allows you to dig in a bit quicker 🙂
