I know it isn’t technically Fall yet but I am ready for pumpkin everything. Ready like this guy is:
Since it’s almost Autumn, and I look for any excuse to eat dessert instead of a “real meal”, I whipped up pumpkin pie oatmeal. Let’s do this.
You will need:
- 1/2 cup dry oats
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- a dash of ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (a little more for garnish)
- 1/2 t vanilla extract
- 1t agave nectar or maple syrup (and more to drizzle on top)
- walnuts or almonds to garnish
- whipped cream to garnish
Measure out your oats then put them into a small pot.
Measure and pour in your milk and water.
Cook over medium heat. When it starts to bubble, add in the sweetener, vanilla, pumpkin, and cinnamon.
Stir until fluffy.
Top with maple syrup and nuts if you like. Go ahead and add a squirt of whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice!
