I’ve been greatly enjoying this little breakfast concoction a ton lately. It’s the perfect tasty recipe to satisfy you until you enjoy the large Thanksgiving feast later in the day. This meal evokes the scents and flavors of autumn, but it can be enjoyed year-round.
Serving Size: 1
- 1/2 cup of old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup of water
- 2+ generous spoonfuls of pumpkin puree
- Ground cloves
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground nutmeg
- One apple diced (save one half of diced apple for later)
- Raw pumpkin seeds
In a small pot, add old fashioned oats, water, and half of the diced apple**. Set to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Stir occasionally.
Once oatmeal is simmering, add the desired amount of pumpkin puree. Stir. Then sprinkle in a generous amount (to taste) of the spices and stir them in.
When the oatmeal has thickened, turn off the stove and serve with the other half of the diced apple and pumpkin seeds. You can also sprinkle more cinnamon on top.
**Adding the apples with the oatmeal will soften them but still leave them a teeny bit crunchy. If you want softer apples, cook them with some water before adding the oatmeal.
If you try this recipe, let me know how you enjoy it! Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
