It’s October so what’s better than some nice warm, pumpkin pie oatmeal to get your day started? The ingredients in this recipe are portioned for a large family or perhaps a potluck, but you could also make a batch of it at the beginning of the week and let it carry you through for breakfast each morning. (Although I would suggest adding a little milk to the pot each day when you reheat it.) Either way, I think you’ll enjoy this pumpkin pie oatmeal that’s full of fiber and great spices that will help boost your immune system during cold and flu season.
- 6 c. oatmeal
- 6 c. milk (I like an almond/coconut milk combination)
- 9 T palm sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1/2 t ground cloves
- 1/2 t ground nutmeg
- 1 1/2 T ground cinnamon
- 1/4 t ground allspice
- 1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin puree
- Combine oats and milk in a medium sized pot. Cook on medium heat for 8 minutes. Stir in pumpkin puree. Reduce heat to low and cook for an additional two minutes. Serve
