Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

12 Nov

This is the perfect thing to make if you have some leftover pumpkin puree. I first thought about making some mini pumpkin pies (maybe later), but then breakfast happened first and I was craving steel cut oats. Just throw in some pumpkin, spices, and brown sugar and you have a delicious start to your day! I topped mine with some chopped pecans from the pecan tree in my backyard that’s been good to me this year. Hope you get to eat as much pumpkin as you can this time of year – enjoy!

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

1/2 cup steel cut oats
1 3/4 cups water
Dash of salt
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 cup pumpkin
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Yield: 2 large servings

Boil the water in a large pot. Add the oats and salt, stir together. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 30 minutes. Make sure to stir the oats occasionally so they don’t stick to the bottom of the pot. After 30 minutes, add the pumpkin, milk, brown sugar, vanilla, and spice. Stir together and cook another 10 minutes. Spoon the oatmeal into a ramekin or small bowl and top with chopped pecans and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Serve while hot and enjoy!
