Pie for breakfast? You better believe it. This pumpkin flavored oatmeal definitely delivers. Despite tasting like dessert, it’s healthy too.


  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 4 tablespoons pureed pumpkin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


  1. Place the water and salt in a medium saucepan over high heat. Stir to dissolve salt, and bring to a boil. Add oatmeal, and stir to combine. Turn heat down to medium and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the water has been absorbed completely.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and brown sugar. Return to the stove and continue to cook over low heat, until warmed through.
  3. Divide oatmeal between two bowls. Top with pecans and syrup before serving.
