Quick Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Quick Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

 

I really love pumpkin pie. I’m also definitely not a morning person, so making breakfast is frequently a struggle. This quick 10-minute oatmeal recipe comes through on both points, though. Easy, full of pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla, it’s fantastic. It even reheats well, so make up a big batch on Monday and enjoy it for the rest of the week!

Start by simmering a 50/50 mix of water and milk in a pot large enough to prevent boil-overs.

Cook for 2-3 minutes until oats are cooked and thickened to your liking, then serve. Top with dried cherries or cranberries.
