Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal For One
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup whole milk (can also use skim, almond, or rice milk)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmug
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
- Brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup
Sprinkle with sugar or drizzle with honey or maple syrup and serve warm with milk.
The above was her version but I changed it a little to suit my taste and ingredients I had on hand.
To a small pan I added the following:
3 TBSP powdered milk
1/2 c oatmeal
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 c water
1/2 c pumpkin (used pumpkin cubes I canned)
I took a fork and smashed the pumpkin and cooked on low until done. I sprinkled brown sugar on top and it was very good. I made my first bowl on Tuesday while canning and again this morning while I was canning.
You could also make up packets of this ahead of time and add the wet ingredients when you cook it.
Put the powdered milk, oatmeal and spice in a baggie or small container. This is a wonderful way to get a little fruit for breakfast.
