Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Posted Oct 04 2011 6:53am



My usual breakfast consists of oatmeal and a piece of fruit, but this morning I decided to spice up my breakfast by adding a little twist, pumpkin. 

One of my favorite fall foods is pumpkin, as I begin to post more recipes you’ll notice my obsession with this versatile and nutritious fall vegetable. It’s rich orange coloring and mild taste makes an excellent addition to just about any dish.

I think you’ll find this is a comforting and nutritious packed breakfast complete with a pumpkin pie flavor, perfect for a crisp fall morning. This effortless breakfast is perfect if you’re in a hurry and don’t have much time to spare, you can even prepare this at night and simply heat it up in the microwave in the morning for a healthy grab and go meal!

Ingredients
1/2cup of old fashioned oats
1 cup of water (or soy milk)
1/4 cup of pumpkin
1 tbsp of maple syrup + 1/2 tbsp for garnish
1/8 of tsp of vanilla
1/2 tsp of nutmeg
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/8 tsp of ginger
1/2 tbsp of pumpkin seeds

Method
Add water (or soy milk) to a saute pan over medium heat, Once water comes to a boil add in the oats

 Mix together until oatmeal begins to form, but still has a liquid texture (about 5 minutes)

Add in pumpkin
Add in spices, vanilla, and 1 tbsp of maple syrup and continually mix until all is well blended and oatmeal has a thicker, creamy consistency (or it has the consistency you desire)
Remove from heat and spoon oatmeal into a bowl, garnish with pumpkin seeds and remaining maple syrup!


Enjoy the warm pumpkin pie oatmeal

Want to make this recipe even easier to prepare, simply use a microwave. Mix together water (or milk) and oats and heat for one minute, (oatmeal should still have a liquid consistency) add in the pumpkin, spices, vanilla, and syrup and thoroughly mix. Microwave for an additional minute and there you have it your super delicious breakfast prepared in less than 5 minutes, now there’s no excuse for missing out on the most important meal of the day!
