Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

August 22, 2011

Oh yeah, fall is in the air. Pfffttt, yeah right..not here in Tampa. It won’t feel like fall, well until about February, when it starts to get “cold”. But I am seeing pumpkin pop up everywhere on the net, so I thought I would jump on the band wagon.

I am an oatmeal lover. As a kid, I ate the “Rolled Oats”. But as an adult, I have grown to appreciate a more “toothier” oatmeal. One with more substance and flavor. So I moved onto Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal. Since it takes about 30 minutes to cook, I would make a big batch at night and reheat it in the morning. Kind of a P.I.A.

Que, COACH’S OATS. The fine folks at Coach’s Oats were one of our sponsors at the infamous RockHer Bash I co-hosted with Susan and Brandi. I had never had their product prior to then. Actually, never even heard of it.
When I got home, I cooked some oatmeal from a sample pack they provided for our attendees. One bite and I was hooked. It only took 5 minutes to cook and it had a wonderful nutty flavor. I am all about saving some time.

Sooo, I am a convert. No more 30 minute oatmeal for me. Coach’s Oats rocks my taste-buds.

The perfect oatmeal with all of the flavor of pumpkin pie
Ingredients
  • ½ cup skim milk
  • ½ cup water
  • ⅓ cup Coach's Oats
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2½ tablespoons 100% pure pumpkin( I did NOT use pumpkin pie filling)
  • ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon half and half
  • 3 pecans, toasted (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan bring the milk and water to a boil.
  2. Add the oats and reduce the heat to a simmer.
  3. Cook oats for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 1 minute.
  5. Stir in the brown sugar, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice.
  6. Pour into a bowl and top with half and half and pecans.
Notes
You could use pumpkin pie filling if that is all you have, you would just have to decrease the pumpkin pie spice.

    I really love this idea! The combination of pumpkin pie spices would be fantastic in oatmeal. You can bet I’ll be putting this on the table soon.

    What a great idea for a pantry staple! I’ve always just piled on the butter and sugar until it quit tasting like horse fodder! Must try your new version :)

    Leslie it is so crazy that you posted this oatmeal recipe today! I have been on a real oatmeal kick lately and have had fun creating different flavored oatmeal over the past few weeks. I made a S’mores oatmeal (sharing it tomorrow on my blog), an apple pie oatmeal, and next I was going to try a pumpkin pie oatmeal (so thanks for sharing)!

    This sounds amazing. It’s not quite fall here in Texas, either. Although, in my opinion it’s never to early for anything fall or pumpkin ; )

    Mmm, I love pumpkin anything! This looks so delicious. I’ve been trying to hold off baking with pumpkin because it’s still so humid and gross here in VA, but I’m not sure how much longer I can wait!
