Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
This creamy Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal is full of flavor and is so easy to make! It’s the perfect breakfast for busy folks and it can even be made ahead of time!
I love a good hearty oatmeal. A while back, I made this Apple Pie Oatmeal. Another flavorful oatmeal recipe was long overdue. So I teamed up with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter® to create this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal for your enjoyment. I’m a total fan of the all new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter® products. The new formula is full of omega 3s, healthy fats and non-GMO plant based oils. It doesn’t contain any cholesterol, trans fat or partially hydrogenated oils. I can easily spread it over a slice of this Apple Pie Snickerdoodle Bread without having to wait for it to soften. It’s soft and creamy straight from the fridge!
I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter in my Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal recipe. It boosted the creaminess factor. And it helps prevent the oatmeal from clumping. This is great if you plan on making the oatmeal ahead of time. The oatmeal won’t clump up while being stored in your refrigerator. One cup of pumpkin boosts the nutrition in this oatmeal. Fiber. Vitamins A, E and C. Omega 3 and 6. And of course, pumpkin pie spice boosts the flavor of this oatmeal.
This recipe makes two large one cup servings or four smaller half cup servings. If you’re serving more people, increase the ingredient quantity to meet your needs. Ken isn’t a fan of oatmeal so I made a batch of this for myself. I’ll have a nice hearty breakfast for a couple of days this week, thanks to this pumpkin pie oatmeal!
