Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Oatmeal Recipes

Written by Becky

Being back in Salt Lake City after being gone for over a month, I am feeling the peace of coming home. Familiarity all around me: sounds of the trax going by, the brightly colored leaves dusting my feet at I ran through the park yesterday, a salad from Cafe Rio, coffee at 9th and 9th, then today…SNOW!! Really?! I am just not quite ready for you. I was just settling into fall. But, I was quickly reminded that this is one of the things I love most about Utah. Even when it does snow, it is usually not too cold to go outside. Plus, I have some super fun snow and rain boots that I can slip on to brave the outdoors. It’s not so bad after all. And its an excuse to get back out the oatmeal. Here are a few varieties that I have created the last few cold days. Maybe this will warm up your day as it did mine.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
1 serving of Oats (I use McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oats but you can use Old Fashioned or Quick Oats too)
1/8 cup of vanilla soy milk or almond breeze
2 tsp pumpkin puree
1 packet of splenda
dusting of cinnamon
a few crumbled pecans

Banana Almond Berry Oats
1 serving of Oats (any style)
1/8 cup milk (soy, almond, or regular)
1/4 banana sliced
a few blackberries
1 tsp Almond Butter

Why do I love Oatmeal so much???
Because I would not survive Utah winters without it.
It keeps me full until lunch or even longer
Its a strange creative outlet for me
Limitless variety
Warms my soul…there’s nothing like a hot bowl of oatmeal as I read in the morning

  1. I eat oatmeal for breakfast every day! It's my favorite. Pumpkin is a great one for fall. You should try my baked oatmeal on my blog:)

  2. I had steal cut oats today for breakfast as well, just a simple variety with brown sugar and milk. Can't wait to try one of your wonderful varieties. The trouble will be which one to begin with? yum!

  3. I eat steel cut oatmeal every day also. My personal favorite, since I don't like milk on oatmeal at all, is bananas and blueberries although any other berries also works. The banana gives you a great helping of potassium and that is something I need and the taste is great. It really sets me up for the day.

  4. I eat oatmeal for breakfast every single day! In the summer I love it with fresh blueberries, but lately I've been adding in a spoonful of pumpkin puree – yummy!
