Fall week continues on with my favorite recipe I have made. It is super easy and gives you that pumpkin pie experience literally in minutes! Everyone gobbled this up and my pumpkin pie hating husband! (seriously I think that is a cardinal sin!). I am so glad I woke up one morning wanting to oatmeal and having some canned organic pumpkin pie mix leftover. I just started throwing things together and this happened...magic in a bowl!
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
- 1 cup of rolled oatmeal
- 2 cups of milk (I used almond)
- 1 cup of canned pumpkin pie (if you do just pumpkin puree, make sure to add some cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, ground allspice and some salt to season it into a pumpkin pie taste!)
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- Pepitas and Cranberries for toppings
In a saucepan heat up the oatmeal and milk over a medium high heat. Let it come to a boil and add pumpkin. Reduce heat to medium and let cook for about 7-10 minutes, stirring occasional. After about 5 minutes of cooking stir in your chia seeds and if you adding spices add them here. Let cook a couple more minutes than serve. Top with Pepitas and cranberries, enjoy!
