Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal is the best of both worlds: breakfast, and pumpkin pie! But, it’s healthy, gluten free, vegan, and low sugar, unlike traditional pie. My Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal is loaded with vitamin-rich, fiber-full pumpkin, traditional spices, and naturally sweetened with maple sugar. Have your pie and eat it too.
We finally had our first crisp, Fall weekend here in northern Mississippi. It was amazing! Leggings and plaid as far as the eye can see.
I guess when I feel Fall roll in, I immediately think of Fall flavors as comforting. I am brewing pumpkin chai tea, scouring magazines for new ideas for Thanksgiving sides, and digging glass pumpkins out of my décor drawers to decorate my bookshelves.
I even attended an outdoor market, filled with new and vintage pieces, and the there were huge displays of thermoses as art work.
This bowl of Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal is going to be your favorite breakfast for the season. It is packed with real pumpkin puree, those classic pumpkin pie spices (if you don’t have a pre-blend, which I got from Trader Joe’s, then mix together two-parts cinnamon to one-part of each cloves, allspice and nutmeg), and subtly sweetened with maple sugar. I love how quickly it comes together, and how quickly I can be eating pumpkin pie at the crack of dawn.
You can make this breakfast in the microwave or on the stovetop, whichever one is convenient for you. This is all about you, and all about getting a comforting Fall breakfast to your table as quickly as possible.
Whip up a bowl of Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal and you’ll be tasting Fall in no time.
- ½ cup old fashioned oats
- 1 cup water
- ¼ cup pumpkin puree
- 1 ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
- 1 Tbs. maple sugar or maple syrup
- In the microwave or on the stovetop, cook the oats and water until completely cooked (in my microwave, it takes 3 minutes on 60% power). To the cooked oatmeal, add the rest of the ingredients and stir until completely mixed.
- Taste, and add more maple if you like your oats sweeter, or add more pumpkin pie spice if you like things spicier. Eat, enjoy!
