Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I was trying to think of some ways to use the leftover pumpkin I have from making Pumpkin Bread earlier this week and I remembered reading about Carrot Cake Oatmeal on eatmedelicious. So, Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal seemed like a logical step. It was super easy to make, flavorful, and pretty healthy too. A perfect fall breakfast.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
Ingredients (for 2 servings)
1 cup Quaker oats
1 3/4 cups water (you could also use milk)
heaping 1/2 cup pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup skim milk

Boil water in medium pot on the stovetop. Add the oats, wait until almost all the water has been absorbed and then add pumpkin and mix well. Add vanilla and spices, mix and remove from heat once all the liquid has been absorbed. Portion into bowls and top with brown sugar and cold milk. You can also add some chopped nuts or raisins if you want a heartier oatmeal.
