My husband eats oatmeal all the time but I am normally a little put off by it. This Southern girl prefers cheesy, buttery grits. Who wants grayish, lumpy mush for breakfast when you can have savory, deliciousness instead?! This recipe may have changed my mind about oatmeal. I love the explosion of flavor in this recipe. It is filling and so easy to make, which makes it especially great for busy work mornings. If I like this oatmeal, I wonder if there are other possible combinations in my future?


Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal (A variation of this recipe from the Undressed Skeleton)

  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Chopped pecans

Mix the oats and water together. Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir in almond milk and pumpkin until creamy. Stir in the brown sugar and the spices. Top with chopped pumpkins.
