The whole family enjoys聽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 ten years since we first made pumpkin spice oatmeal and this is still my middle son’s favorite oatmeal. He happily makes this oatmeal throughout the year.

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.

Top your bowl of pumpkin pie oatmeal with whipped cream and transform your breakfast into something absolutely craveable.

This Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal is another favorite that my boys would happily eat this every single morning if I made it that often. Steel cut oatmeal is another great breakfast for fall mornings.

Spiced pear oatmeal full of rolled oats, cooked pears, cinnamon, brown sugar, and butter is a weekday breakfast delight.

  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

If you prefer creamier oatmeal, stir in a splash more milk to adjust the consistency. If you have oatmeal leftover, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The oatmeal will thicken in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove and add a bit more milk as needed to thin it out.

    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

    • Mary says

      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 pur茅e I made from our Thanksgiving pumpkins. I will be sure to make this again soon! Yummy, yummy, yummy 馃構. Thanks for sharing that wonderful recipe!馃5 stars

      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.

    I just made this tonight, YUMMM! I added maple sugar instead of brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla paste and about 3/4 cup raisins while it was cooking. It tastes like a pumpkin oatmeal cookie. We will warm it up for breakfast tomorrow.
    Thank you for sharing your recipe!5 stars
