Prepare Today Homemade- Pumpkin Oatmeal

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
Fall is in the air!  The mornings are cooler and my children want something warm to eat for breakfast.  One of my favorite blogs to get kid friendly recipes from is called Super Healthy Kids and that is where I found a few great pumpkin recipes.  Nothing says fall like pumpkin, and with all the super food nutrients in pumpkin, I am always looking for new ways to use it. 

I made pumpkin oatmeal today and it was delicious.  I really like oatmeal but it can get monotonous eating it the same way everyday, but with oatmeal that tastes like pumpkin pie, I couldn't wait to try it!!


 This recipe couldn't be easier!  Add all ingredients go into the pan, heat until thickened, and eat!  I had all the ingredients on hand in my storage so I know we will be eating this for breakfast a lot this fall.  

 Pumpkin Oatmeal  (from blog.superhealthykids.com)
1/2 C oats (I used quick oats)
1 C milk (1 C water + 3 T non-instant powdered milk)
1/3 C pumpkin puree (canned or dehydrated pumpkin)
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
1-2 t honey

Add all ingredients into a saucepan.  Cook over medium heat around 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and oatmeal is thickened.  Makes about 2 servings. 

Amy and Natalie, from Super Healthy Kids, have several other pumpkin recipes that are healthy and delicious.

Pumpkin is healthy, delicious, and not just for Thanksgiving pies.  Try adding pumpkin to your breakfast and see how yummy it can be!
