Pumpkin Oatmeal

I try to eat right. I really do. Damn difficult, that.

One thing I’ve been focusing on lately is breakfast. I’m more of “ignore eating until my stomach turns inside out and I realize it’s 1:30pm” type. But, I’ve been making an effort.

Here’s what I had today.

Pumpkin Oatmeal

Pumpkin Oatmeal
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 1
  • ¼ cup uncooked steel-cut oats
  • 1½ cups water
  • ¼ cup pumpkin purée
  • ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • chopped walnuts
  • Craisins
  • Maple syrup
  1. Cook the oats according to package directions. When the oats are almost done, stir in the pumpkin puree and spice . Allow to finish cooking (to heat pumpkin through). Put in a bowl, and top with maple syrup, nuts, and Craisins. (Or whatever you choose!) I added 1 tsp Chia seeds to mine.


You can have fun with this. Add flax seed or Chia seed if you have them. Use regular oats instead of steel cut. Add a splash of Almond or Soy milk. Go nuts. Use honey or cinnamon sugar instead of maple syrup (I like to add something sweet, since the pumpkin isn’t). And eat breakfast!
