Cinnamon Maple Pumpkin Oatmeal


We have had some of the most beautiful fall mornings lately, here in Nebraska.  It has put me in the mood for all things fall!  I've sprinkled some fake leaves here and there throughout the house, got my fall colored couch pillows out, and set some candles, pumpkins and gourds all throughout the house.   I love fall!

I have also been craving fall foods.  I picked up a box of Cranberry Bread Mix from Trader Joes {yum} and I have had squash almost every day this week.  My skin is starting to have a nice orange glow:)


Mornings have been a little chilly, so my Overnight Cold Chia Oats just were not cutting it for me.  I wanted something warm, comforting and full of fall flavors. I had a few cans of pumpkin and went searching for a Pumpkin Oatmeal recipe.  This is the second recipe I have made, and in my opinion it is perfect!  Creamy, with a touch of cinnamon, salty and maple sweet-- but not too sweet.  A healthy comfort food.

Cinnamon Maple Pumpkin Oatmeal {serves 1}
{adapted from All Recipes}

1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup milk (I used almond)
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
3 dashes cinnamon
1 dash ginger
1 dash nutmeg
2 pinches salt
___________________
2 tsp maple syrup
1 pat of butter {I used Earth Balance spread}
chopped walnuts {optional}

Add all but maple syrup and butter to a saucepan.  Bring to boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until thickened.  Place in a bowl.  Add the pat of butter and a swirl of maple syrup.

  2. Wow, this sounds amazing! I can't wait to make it. I usually have oatmeal each morning and have been sprinkling pumpkin pie spice in on some days. This will take that up several notches.
