Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
PUMPKIN PIE OATMEAL (individual serving)
slightly adapted from The Craving Chronicles
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats (I use a heaping 1/3 cup)
2 Tbsp. canned pumpkin
1 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. milk
1/8 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
dash of cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and ginger*
dried cranberries, optional
chopped pecans, optional
Stir together pumpkin, brown sugar, water, milk, vanilla, salt, and spices in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir in oats and cranberries and/or pecans, if using, until well mixed. Microwave on HIGH for 1-2 minutes, or until desired consistency. Top with more pecans and cranberries, if desired. Serve immediately.
* You could also just use a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice.
