    This was great! I added the additional ingredients after cooking for 1 minute, then cooked one minute more. I skipped the Splenda (I don't use it) and added 1 tbl. brown sugar. Don't skip the vanilla, it makes a difference! Thanks! (P.S. For the spices I used Pumpkin pie spice instead.) - 1/19/08

    Plenty of taste and fiber. This one's a keeper. i used stevia. A couple of chopped, toasted walnuts or pecans would be good on top. - 7/2/09

    The recipe says to use instant oatmeal but the nutritional breakdown says it uses Old Fashioned Quaker Oatmeal- Plain (1/2 cup dry), (1 serving). So which is correct? There is a big difference in the two kinds. - 3/15/13

  • Most of my family including kids really enjoyed this! Most certainly a keeper. My husband thought it was a bit rich which is something since he has a super big sweet tooth. I used pumpkin pie mix so maybe next time I will try pureed pumkin and toasted walnuts would be FAB on this! Great recipe! - 10/11/13

  • So yummy! I used quick cook oats instead and threw everything into the water once it boiled. Also used a tsp of agave nectar instead of splenda (i won't touch that stuff). Even my 3 yr old loved it. - 3/15/13

  • It was OK. I made it with brown sugar because I don't do artificial sweeteners. Too much cinnamon I think... - 11/9/12

  • Great job. I didn't use splenda (not a fan of sweetness in my oatmeal) but I used a crap ton more cinnamon like I like and the vanilla was the right touch. Gonna combine this with a variation I have for creamy banana oatmeal. Should end up tasting like Starbucks' pumpkin spice latte! Happy Halloween - 10/13/12

  • Having this for breakfast tomorrow morning, can't wait to see if I like it. I love to add things to my oatmeal, like fruits, but never even considered pumpkin, but why not, I love Pumpkin oatmeal cookies. - 6/11/11

  • Tried it with Fresh pureed pumpkin (from my garden) and cooked oatmeal rather than instant - with added sweetner it was pretty good! - 1/18/11

  • I used brown sugar (heaping tbsp) instead of Splenda. I thought it was a great change from the everyday oatmeal!! - 10/31/10

  • This is pretty good! Still seems to be missing something though. I am going to try mixing brown sugar and SF maple syrup in with the pumpkin next time. Other than that, I love pumpkin and I love this Fall-inspired recipe. - 10/3/10

  • I love pumpkin so I was excited to try this. I used a tiny pinch of brown sugar instead of the Splenda. I eat oatmeal for breakfast almost every day anyways, so this is a nice variation that is even better for me! - 3/14/10
