Pumpkin Oatmeal

'Tis the season! It may not officially be Autumn, but pumpkins abound in our local farmer's markets, coffee shops, and bakeries!

This warm pumpkin oatmeal is a perfect start to any chilly morning - and who doesn't like waking up to pumpkin spice?!

Stove-Top Pumpkin Oatmeal

Adapted from

Serves: 2


  • 1 cup rolled oats**

  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk (or milk of choice or water or a mix)

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup plus additional to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a small/medium pot, add the oats and almond milk. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

  2. Once simmering, stir in the pumpkin, maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, and salt.

  3. Cook just until the oats are softened and pleasant to chew, but not mushy, about 2 minutes. Taste and adjust spices as you see fit (be careful, a little goes a long way!).

  4. Serve hot, topped with additional maple syrup, toasted pecans, or fresh fruit.
