Pumpkin Oatmeal Recipe

Written by Becky

I’ve been making Pumpkin Oatmeal for years, every fall, when the leaves are falling and the mornings are more chilly.  I have altered my recipe slightly and I even have a few variations.  Somedays I bake the oatmeal, somedays I use steel cut oats and others I use old fashioned oats, always with pure pumpkin puree, always with cinnamon.

Sugar-free Pumpkin Oatmeal Recipe

The way I make pumpkin oatmeal most often is to heat old fashioned oats over the stove top adding a little pumpkin puree and maple syrup to sweeten.  I top it off with some warmed milk, pecans, and a few shakes of cinnamon. It all takes just over 10 minutes to make, then I sit and enjoy a few minutes of quietness while I eat.

  1. I keep seeing recipes with pumpkin purée and lots of lovely nuts! A trip to the supermarket is needed, methinks. I love oatmeal and this recipe sounds pretty perfect.
