A creamy and filling oatmeal that tastes like pumpkin pie and takes only 2 minutes. It’s dessert for breakfast!
It’s PUMPKIN SEASON! That also means that it’s getting cold out. Like real cold, real fast. This weekend we saw the first flurries in Boston. Did you get snow? Ah! get ready. With all this cold weather, it really makes me want something warm for breakfast. Cold cereal, or a quick muffin won’t do. I need something that will warm me up AND fill me up and take less than 5 minutes to make. As I’ve said before, I have a bit of a sweet tooth when it comes to breakfast. I made two pumpkin pies last week. One was for a work Halloween party and the other was a test pie that my Taller Half and I enjoyed for most of the week. The pumpkin pie was delicious, and it went GREAT with my morning coffee. I figured, hey, I’m eating a vegetable for breakfast. But I know pie is not really a wise breakfast option if I want to fit into a wedding dress in May. That’s when I came up with this little biddy. Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal.
- Quick Oats
- Brown Sugar
- Pumpkin puree
- Cinnamon/pumpkin pie spice
- Biscoff Spread (or Cookie Butter)
- Toasted walnuts (optional)
And the best part (besides how creamy and pumpkin-y it tastes) is how quick it is to make. It only takes 1 minute to assemble and 1 minute to cook in the microwave! Check it out – delicious pumpkin pie oatmeal in a DASH.
To finish off this filling Fall breakfast, stir in some Biscoff spread (or Cookie Butter). The Biscoff spread gives the oatmeal that “graham cracker crust” taste. AND it makes the oatmeal extra creamy. Do I even need to give these reasons? Biscoff ALWAYS makes everything better. Don’t believe me? Check it out hereI LOVE dessert for breakfast, especially when it’s not actually dessert AND has a vegetable int it! Since this only takes you two minutes to make, you have some extra time. So go ahead, sit down and enjoy your creamy and healthy pumpkin pie (oatmeal) for breakfast.
Yield: 1 serving
Time: 2 minutes
- 1/4 cup of Plain Quick Oats (the kind that cooks in 1 minute)
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk (or water – depending on how thick you like your oatmeal)
- 1 Tablespoon of pumpkin puree
- 1/8 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice**
- Sprinkle of cinnamon**
- 1 teaspoon of brown sugar (If you want it sweeter – just add more)
- 1 teaspoon of Biscoff Spread
- 3 Toasted walnuts (for serving, optional)
In a microwave safe bowl, add oats, milk, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar. Stir everything until combined. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir in Biscoff Spread and top with toasted walnuts, if desired. Enjoy!
*** I really like cinnamon and usually add a sprinkle of cinnamon along with the pumpkin pie spice. Pumpkin pie spice works best in this recipe, but if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can substitute cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. I would do a 1/8 tsp of cinnamon, and a light sprinkle of cloves and nutmeg. Adjust spice to your liking.
I really like Oats. Do you? Check out my other recipes using oats:
