Homemade Pumpkin Oatmeal

Pumpkin Oatmeal  

Tis the season of pumpkin everythinggg, and I am totally okay with it :) Personally, I think pumpkin flavors and scents should get more lovin' throughout the entire year, but that's just me! So, because my pumpkin spice coffee isn't enough in the morning, here's a pumpkin spice oatmeal recipe to get the day started off right: 

Total time:  5-7 minutes

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (I used pumpkin pie spice in mine)
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons natural peanut butter (optional)

Directions:

1. In a small saucepan combine the milk, sugar, pumpkin, vanilla, and spice.

2. Bring to a small boil and add the oats.

3. Reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes.

4. Stir in the peanut butter (if using).

Finally, top with warm maple syrup and a few more spices! Delicious!
