pies. I have made pasta with pumpkin sauce, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin cupcakes, etc.
So today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite breakfast (sometimes dinner) recipes, Spiced Pumpkin Oatmeal.
Spiced Pumpkin Oatmeal
3/4 cups Old Fashioned Quaker Oats
1 1/2 cups water (optional 1 cup water and 1/2 cup milk)
3 Tablespoons pumpkin puree
1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup pecans
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup cranberries (craisins)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg or mace, optional
1 tablespoon milk or cream
Heat the water until boiling. Add in the oatmeal, salt, vanilla and pumpkin. Cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar, pecans,, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins and craisins and remove from heat. Divide the oatmeal into bowls and top with a little milk or cream. Eat hot and enjoy.
