quick-cooking rolled oats

canned pumpkin puree
pumpkin pie spice
YUMMY!!! I have to disagree about the "raw pumpkin" taste other reviewers mentioned. I scaled recipe to 1 serving used 1/2 c. regular rolled oats, 1/2 c. milk, 1/2 c. water. Added pumpkin and spices (didn't have pie spice) and 1/4 c. raisins. My secret ingredient a dash of salt. Never make oatmeal without it-brings out the flavors. Microwaved for 5:30 mins. on high. Added 1 Tbs. maple syrup at end. Omitted cinnamon sugar. This will be in my regular breakfast rotation from now on. Thanks for the recipe!
I think it is a good idea, a healthy way to satisfy my pumpkin craving, but the oatmeal was hard as a rock! next time I will up the milk/water to 1 1/2 cup and add the pumpkin in at the begining to cook it a little more. I also added 2 packets of splenda and increased the pumpkin pie spice a couple of shakes.
If you make this oatmeal the way it is written, it is very bland and hard. I ended up adding more milk, because the oatmeal was in a big, hard lump. I also added a little salt, which helped bring out the flavors. It was still really bland, so I added extra pumpkin, and doubled the amount of pumpkin pie spice. This helped a lot. I also sprinkled the top of the oatmeal with a generous amount of extra cinnamon sugar. With these alterations, the oatmeal is very, very good. The pumpkin gives it a smooth, almost velvety texture. I will be making this again, but with these changes. Thanks for sharing!
I twekaed this recipe to my taste just a little: I make it one serving at a time the way I normally do: half a cup of oldfashioned oats with one cup of milk, in the microwave. Instead of using pumpkin pie spice, I use the three traditional spices for pumpkin pie: cinnamon, ginger and ground cloves. I don't use cinnamon sugar either, I use crystaline fructose (which I use ion place of sucrose just about everywhere).
Its one of my favorite breakfasts-- I started making it at the beginning of the fall semester when the weather started to turn wintery here in Wisconsin, now it's late June and I still by canned pumpkin regularly just so I can fix it. Thanks for the great idea!
Pumpkin lovers heaven, and healthy, too. With a little experimentation it's perfect for my taste. I use 1 cup of milk for 1/2 cup oatmeal (cook on stovetop) 1/2 cup pumpkin, 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a dash of cloves. For sweetness I added a Sweet-n-Low. It's like having dessert for breakfast, and I agree with the other reviewer - extremely filling and satisfying!
I love pumpkin oatmeal! I've been putting canned pumpkin in my oats for several weeks now. I was adding 2 tsp. organic brown sugar, but I've switched to sticking half of a frozen banana in the microwave for one minute, 'til it's melted, then adding in the oats/pumpkin/water/spices. That way I'm eating naturally sweetened oatmeal, plus getting veggies AND fruit in my first meal of the day!
Wow, this is a real nutritional powerhouse, using the old-fashioned oats instead of quick. I used 1 c. oats, 1 c. milk, dash of salt, generous 1/2 c. pumpkin, 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice plus a sprinkle of cinnamon, plus Splenda until it tasted sweet enough. I cooked it on top of the stove. Delicious, and I like that it has the cinnamon, which is good to keep blood sugar levels steady.
Like another reviewer, I liked the idea of pumpkin (my favorite)in my oatmeal (my second favorite?, but didn't like the 'rawness' of the pumpkin flavor. My solution? Make a batch of Libby's pumpkin custard usng the recipe on the back of the can. You make your regular bowl of oatmeal and add 1/2 cup of the custard mixture to it. You get double the amount of pumpkin for breakfast and it is PERFECTION in a bowl... and relatively guilt free.
