Pumpkin Oatmeal Recipe
This pumpkin spice oatmeal recipe is one I perfected after months of experimenting with a homemade pumpkin puree and pumpkin spices.
The aromatic spices of fall really shine through in this recipe (although I make it year-round).
I made a pumpkin puree from scratch for this pumpkin oatmeal but a store-bought version will do if you don’t have the time.

How To Make Pumpkin Oatmeal
This special pumpkin oatmeal recipe calls for a few ingredients. In addition to the oatmeal (I chose to use old fashioned oats), you will need milk, a few spices, and pumpkin puree.
If you don’t have pumpkin puree, simply steam about 1/2 cup of pumpkin after you have removed the skin. Mash this completely and add it to the oatmeal. This, along with the milk, will make this oatmeal really creamy and delicious.
This pumpkin oatmeal recipe will take a total of 10 minutes to prepare once you have all your ingredients. You will get 4 servings of this pumpkin spiced oatmeal.
