It’s that time of year again where pumpkin ends up in everything and I kind of enjoy that – minus the PSLs, that is. To the uniformed: I’m referring to the Starbucks drink with a cult following, the pumpkin spice latte.

I happen to be in the minority of those who don’t enjoy the overly sweet, spiced drink so this oatmeal recipe is my way of enjoying pumpkin seasoning in a different way. I also hate to burst your bubble but a pumpkin spice latte contains no actual pumpkin—this recipe does. Better yet, this oatmeal is incredibly easy to make.

Key Ingredients in This Recipe

  • Pumpkin pie seasoning – Pumpkin pie seasoning also known as pumpkin spice is a fragrant combination made with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger.
  • Pumpkin puree – Pumpkin puree, also known as canned pumpkin is made from roasted pumpkin that has been blended to a smooth consistency. They are made with no additional ingredients apart from pumpkin so it is also easy to create your own from roasted, blended pumpkin.
  • Oats –  I use old-fashioned also called rolled oats in this recipe. They absorb more liquid and cook faster than steel-cut oats and add the perfect texture to this oatmeal. Don’t use quick cooking oats they will become mushy in this recipe.
