I eat oatmeal for breakfast anywhere from 2 to 7 days a week. I never get sick of it. I think that’s because I have tried so many different variations and loved almost all of them.
Since it’s Autumn, and I look for any excuse to eat dessert instead of a “real meal”, I whipped up pumpkin pie oatmeal.
You will need:
1/2 cup dry oats
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup pumpkin purée
2 splenda packets ( or sugar, stevia, equal, whatever you like)
A few walnuts
Maple syrup or agave nectar
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 walnuts if you like.
