Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

I love pumpkin! Apparently, I am in good company because since September I have seen pumpkin EVERYTHING online. This makes me happy! As far as I am concerned, I could eat pumpkin goodies year round. My favorite pumpkin recipe is pumpkin bread. I’ll post this recipe in the coming week. Today, I will share my oatmeal recipe I made this morning. It’s a very generous serving, and would possibly serve two people.

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

In a small pot boil 1 1/2 cups water and add a dash of salt. The salt helps the water boil. I don’t know how, I’m not scientific, but it really works and helps with flavor. Next, add to the boiling water, 3/4 cup old fashioned oats. I don’t recommend instant. Turn heat down to medium and allow to cook for 5 min.

This is where it gets good, y’all. Add 1/4 cup pumpkin purée. Stir well. This is where you can get creative and flavor to taste. Here’s what I used:
2 tbls butter
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3 tsp raw sugar
An extra dash of cinnamon
An extra dash of nutmeg

Once all the yummy spices are mixed in you can sit back and enjoy!
