What with Fall being here now, and the winter holidays right around the corner, my thoughts have turned to Thanksgiving … and pumpkin pie. In fact when my husband seen all of the pumpkin I’ve been buying, he asked me to make him a pie. But, that’s for another post. Today’s post is about oatmeal, pumpkin pie oatmeal to be exact. This wonderful treat is full of Fall flavor, and taste just like my favorite pumpkin pie. I’ve seen a few recipes out there for baked pumpkin pie oatmeal, which I’ll be trying soon. But this one is super easy because you make it on the stove top.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup {GF} Rolled Oats
2 tablespoons sucanat or brown sugar
2 tablespoons 100% pure pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice ( I used 1/2 tsp because I like a strong spice flavor. Use 1/4 tsp for a lighter taste) *Recipe Below*
1 tablespoon half and half or evaporated milk
1 Tbs chopped pecans (optional)

In a small saucepan bring the milk and water to a boil.
Add the oats and reduce the heat to a simmer.
Cook oats for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and allow to sit for 1 minute.
Stir in the sucanat, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice.
Pour into a bowl and top with half and half and pecans.
