Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Pumpkin flavor and I have a love hate relationship. Some recipes I try with pumpkin in it, I love and others I hate. For example I have tried several varieties of pumpkin flavored drinks, like lattes and steamers and I disliked every single one. I was determined to find one I liked since everyone seems to love pumpkin flavored drinks, but I think I am done trying. I have also tried a pumpkin ravioli and pumpkin chili and they were both disgusting.

On the other hand I have used pumpkin in various baked goods and pancakes, plus a pumpkin butter, and they are delicious. Just like this oatmeal that is pumpkin flavored and I enjoyed it. My girls loved the oatmeal with the nuts and I enjoyed it better without the nuts. So adding them or not adding them is up to you.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
Ingredients:
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional

Directions:
In a small saucepan, combine the oats and milk. Heat over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring often. Once the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring often, until desired consistency is reached, about 3-5 minutes.

Stir in the pumpkin puree, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Continue to heat until warmed through, about 1-2 minutes.

Divide the oatmeal between 3 bowls and top with maple syrup and pecans, if desired.

Enjoy!!!
