With all the flavors of pumpkin pie stirred into a creamy bowl of oatmeal, this quick and easy Pumpkin Oatmeal is our favorite fall oatmeal. It’s hard to beat a hot breakfast that can be on the table in less than 15 minutes.

We enjoy topping our bowls of oatmeal with a swirl of freshly whipped cream to make it even more like pumpkin pie. The whole family enjoys this oatmeal and the kids have requested this again every single day this week; I think I’m safe to say that it is a hit.

It’s been five years since we first made this pumpkin oatmeal and this is still one of my middle son’s favorite breakfasts. He happily makes this oatmeal on his own all year long.

There’s nothing better than having a terrific breakfast that the kids can make on their own. Especially when they make enough to share with me. Once you’ve mixed up your jar of Pumpkin Pie Spice, you’ll be ready to make this anytime you crave it.

    I woke up to snow this morning and immediately thought PUMPKIN OATMEAL! Trolling through Pinterest I found this reciepe. Made a few modifications by throwing in a few extra things during the cooking process: maple syrup, cinnamon, cloves, and a sprinkle of ginger and let it cook till it was nice and bubbly. Instead of whipped cream I topped it with walnuts and a freshly sliced banana. YUM!5 stars

      I honestly don’t know. Crock-pot oatmeals can be a little finicky. It’s certainly worth trying, but I’d recommend trying it for the first time on a day when you’re home and can monitor the cooking time. Enjoy!

    I made this tonight with Steel Cut Oats, no brown sugar or whipped topping, I’m diabetic.
    I added the pumpkin pie spice to the half water half almond milk and followed the instructions for their preparation. I added the pure pumpkin after the oats were cooked – I wasn’t sure how/if it would effect their cooking.
    This is amazing, I just loved it! Made enough to take with me to work for breakfast. What a great tasty option to oatmeal!5 stars

      You’ll simply need to adjust the cook time for however long you typically cook steel cut oats. (I’m usually far too impatient to wait for them myself.) But it will work the same way with the pumpkin added.

    The pumpkin pie oatmeal was absolutely amazing on this cold, fall morning! I added a fresh cinnamon leaf I brought with me from Jamaica and let that simmer. I also increased the pumpkin purée I made from our Thanksgiving pumpkins. I will be sure to make this again soon! Yummy, yummy, yummy 😋. Thanks for sharing that wonderful recipe!🤗5 stars

    Do you happen to have information on re ipea such as carbs or calories? I’m diabetic, and it would be so helpful. Thank you in advance, and thank you for the yummy recipes.

    • Mary Younkin says

      Yes, that will work great, Sarah. You’ll want to make sure it is labeled as pumpkin puree (with no additional ingredients listed) and not pumpkin pie puree mix.
