Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

I don’t typically share recipes two days in a row, but it occurred to me the other day that I hadn’t shared this gem of a pumpkin recipe yet.  I mentioned it on Facebook to Kara from Rockin’ Granola and Simple Kids, and she asked how to make it.  This is a great way to switch up your oatmeal for fall, and a little healthier than eating Pumpkin Buns, or leftover pumpkin pie for breakfast (Though who doesn’t love eating leftover pumpkin pie for a delicious breakfast treat?!)  Pumpkin Spice Granola and Greek yogurt is still my favorite fall breakfast, but this oatmeal runs a close second.

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

recipe by me!

Makes 3-4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (or honey)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pecan pieces

Bring water to a boil, add oats and cook for 5 minutes.  Turn off burner and allow to thicken for several minutes.  Stir in pumpkin puree, butter, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice until well combined.  Fold in dried cranberries and pecans.
