– Rolled oats – Pumpkin puree – Vanilla extract – Pumpkin pie spice – Cinnamon – Maple syrup, brown sugar, or honey (if desired) – Milk

Ingredients Needed:

Bring the water to a simmer in a medium pot. Add the oats, spices, and vanilla, simmer, stirring occasionally until the oats are soft and the water is absorbed.

Turn off heat and stir in the pumpkin and any optional stir-ins. Cover and let sit for about 5 minutes.

Sweetened to taste with maple syrup, honey, or applesauce. I typically add 1 tablespoon maple syrup to the whole batch for just a little sweetness.

Step 3.

Serve topped with milk, dried cranberries, raisins, or pecans if desired. Store leftovers in the fridge for 3-5 days and reheat as needed.

Step 4.
