Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal that's cooked quickly in the microwave or on the stove-top brings all the flavor of a delicious pumpkin pie filling in a healthy, filling bowl of oatmeal that's perfect to start any morning.

As I shared last week, I have never part someone who looks forward to pumpkin spice season all year long, but lately I am becoming more of a pumpkin person than I ever expected. And this is coming from someone who thought pumpkin pie was the absolute worst excuse for a pie until about three years ago. Now I love a good slice of pumpkin pie of a cold day, but it definitely took some time and convincing.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal served with coffee and pecans.

That brings me to today and my shock that I have been eating this pumpkin pie oatmeal on repeat the past few weeks. It couldn't be easier to make and I am able to get it on the table in under 5 minutes most mornings. It starts with a mashed banana for natural sweetness and then combines canned pumpkin puree, oats, almond milk, pumpkin pie spice, and a touch of maple syrup. Truth be told it doesn't really need the maple syrup with the banana, but I love a hint of maple on these oats so I add it. All of that is cooked together in the microwave or on the stove-top and the end result is a rich, creamy pumpkin oatmeal that you will love.

Now when making this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal, you can make lots of adjustments to make it perfect for you:

  • If you don't like bananas, you can replace the banana with an extra 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree or unsweetened applesauce. Just note that you may need to add some extra maple syrup or sweetener depending on how sweet you like your oats.
  • To boost the nutritional punch, consider adding things like ground flaxseeds, chia seeds, maca powder, hemp seeds, cacao powder, nut butters, or protein powder.
  • Some people don't love the cloves and allspice in pumpkin pie spice. Instead you can just cinnamon or a combination of cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • This oatmeal freezes really well so you may want to consider making a large batch and then freezing it for quick breakfasts. Here's a good tutorial on freezing your morning oats.
