It’s Fall my favorite time of year and I am so excited to get back in the kitchen. Lately most of my time has been spent in the kitchen working on recipes for my upcoming soup e-book but this morning I decided that I would try out a new recipe.
I have had a hankering for pumpkin and finally made myself some pumpkin pie oatmeal. It was delicious!
- For the Oatmeal:
- 1&3/4 cup water
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie puree)
- 1/8 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- For the Topping:
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
- 1 tablespoon pecan pieces
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
In a small pot over high heat bring the water to a boil; stir in the oats and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 5-7 minutes until most/all of the water has cooked away.
While the oats are cooking place the pumpkin puree in a small bowl and combine with the spices and vanilla extract. Place the pumpkin seeds and pecans in a small sauce pan and toast over medium heat until just lightly browned and aromatic.
Over the heat stir in the pumpkin mixture. Turn the heat off and stir in the chia seeds. Divide into two bowls. Top the oatmeal with 1 teaspoon each of brown sugar and half of the pecans and pumpkin seeds.
