Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

By Tuesday, May 07, 2013 , , ,


Whilst this is the perfect seasonal breakfast for the colder winter months, pumpkin oatmeal is delicious year round, and is a great way to sneak a portion of vegetables into breakfast. Better yet, it even tastes like pumpkin pie! I tried this for the first time when I was able to purchase Libby's canned pumpkin puree, but you can quite easily steam and puree your own pumpkin and use it in place.

You will need:
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tbsp ginger (fresh or ground)
1-2 tbsps maple syrup if desired

Fruit and toppings of your choice

Bring the water and milk to the boil on the stove in a small saucepan and once the liquid is bubbling add your oats. Turn the heat down to the lowest and allow the oats to simmer for approximately 5 minutes and then add your pumpkin puree, stirring thoroughly, and then add in vanilla extract, maple syrup, cinnamon and ginger. When your oats have thickened up to your desired consistency, which is after about 8 minutes, pour into a bowl and top it with your desired toppings. I personally adore cranberries or fresh figs on pumpkin oatmeal, and peanut butter or coconut butter tastes divine with it too.

  1. Hi Siobhan!
    I tried most of your oatmeals and I truly love them! But this morning I made this one and I'm not sure what I've made wrong.. I am sure that I've used way too much ginger.. �� But do you use any sweetener like banana as you did in your carrot cake oatmeal?

    1. Hi there! I don't use any banana because I don't think I need it in this one, however the taste of pumpkin oatmeal is an aquired taste and not everyone likes it! Maybe next time you could add some sweetner? :)
