Ingredients for 1 serving
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water (or almond milk or milk for non-vegan)
- 2-3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- pure maple syrup (or honey if you're not vegan) to taste
Mix all ingredients except syrup and cook according to package directions. I used quick oats this time, and microwaved it about 2 minutes. Stir in syrup to taste, if desired (I used about 1/2 tablespoon).
This oatmeal is incredibly easy and incredibly tasty. The kids and I all went crazy for it and have had it several times since the first bowl last week (that one didn't even make it to the picture stage...I had to fight off the wolves, aka toddlers, to take this one). We absolutely love this oatmeal. Unsurprisingly, meat-eating hubby, aka pumpkin hater, didn't even care to try a bite. More for us pumpkin-loving girls, I say.
I kept the spices simple for the kids, I think a pumpkin pie spice-type assortment (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger) would be excellent in this oatmeal, too.
