If you’re looking for more ways to get pumpkin into your life, why not give this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal a try? It has all the flavors of a beloved pumpkin pie, but is actually acceptable to eat for breakfast. This recipe uses pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice to save you from digging deep into your spice rack on sleepy mornings. As you’ll see, it takes minimal effort to bring your standard oatmeal to the next level.

This oatmeal comes together in a handful of minutes. To add the pumpkin pie flavoring, all you need is pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and chopped pecans. Pumpkin pie spice is a pre-mixed spice blend that you can find at your regular grocery store. It contains all the spices you’d add to a classic pumpkin pie, such as cinnamon, ginger and cloves. If you prefer, you could also make your own pumpkin pie blend – playing up the spices you like best. Instead of chopped pecans, you could use chopped walnuts or almonds, or feel free to skip the nuts entirely.

If you’re cooking for one, then you can easily store leftovers in the fridge. The next day, add a splash of water or almond milk to loosen the oatmeal, and reheat over the stove. If you’re running late to get to work, you could also bring the cold oatmeal with you and reheat it in the microwave when you get there.
