Pumpkin Pie is such a traditional American dessert…it’s so comforting and it really connects you to such a wonderful time of the year – fall and the Thanksgiving holiday.
Well, with this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Recipe, you can start your day with the flavor of pumpkin pie in a classic, steel cut oatmeal. This recipe was something I’d been meaning to play around with for quite a while.
I simply followed the instructions on my oatmeal package, but subbed out some of the milk and water for pumpkin puree. To avoid adding sugar, I used some vanilla extract, and instead of milk, I used unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze to add more sweetness. But if you prefer, you can absolutely use some non-fat milk instead.
The texture of the oatmeal was perfect, and I topped it with a drizzle of maple syrup for added flavor.
This is such a hearty and healthy breakfast recipe and it is wonderfully gratifying and satisfying. Enjoy!
