Pumpkin Oatmeal

Submitted by: SLIMKATIE

Introduction

Since a lot of you asked for this recipe, here is my basic recipe. I do like to change it up by adding nuts, cottage cheese, flaxseed, wheat germ, chocolate chips, etc. This is also good with butternut squash or acorn squash in place of the pumpkin.

Ingredients

    1/2 cup old fashioned oats (40 g)
    1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (you can sub whatever milk you like, but I always used almond milk)
    1/4-1/2 cup water (if you like your oats really thick, use 1/4 cup... I like to use 1/2 cup)
    2 Tbsp raisins (20 g)
    1 tsp packed brown sugar (you can add more if you like)
    1/3 cup canned pumpkin
    Cinnamon, to taste (I use about 1/2 tsp)
    Pumpkin Pie Spice, to taste (I use about 1/8 tsp)

Directions

Combine all ingredients except for the pumpkin in a small pot over medium to med-high heat. Bring to a gentle simmer until it thickens, stirring frequently. Add the pumpkin and stir to combine. Keep over the heat until the pumpkin is heated through.

Makes 1 very filling serving

    This recipe sounded fantastic so I couldn't wait to try it! Today I had it with some of the fresh pumpkin I canned up last night and it was AMAZING! And very filling. I would eat it as a dessert-like dinner on a cold November evening ;) - 10/2/10

    I'm just becoming a fan of oatmeal, so I wasn't CRAZY about this. I think I overcooked it and it was a little mushy. The flavors were great and I'm definately going to try it again! - 10/21/10

    I am trying new things and thought I'd give this a shot. It was good, but I have texture issues w/ pumpkin. I'm going to try it again though. I like pumpkin muffins, but hate pumpkin pie. If you like all things pumpkin, I'm sure you will love it! - 10/8/10

  • I made this today - it was definitely filling. I need to work with the seasoning, because it was a little bit bland for me. I would make it again. - 10/4/10
