This pumpkin oatmeal is the perfect fall breakfast idea! It’s got just the right spice and sweetness to make mornings cozy.


  • 1 cup milk of choice (oat milk or almond milk for vegan)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter (coconut oil for vegan)
  • 2 cups Old Fashioned rolled oats (do not use instant oats or steel cut oats)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Maple syrup, to serve


  1. Stir together the milk, water and pumpkin puree in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the oats and toast for about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often, until fragrant.
  3. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Turn the heat to low and carefully pour in the liquids, stirring. Cover and cook on low heat without stirring for 5 minutes until tender. Remove from the heat. Serve immediately for a chunky texture, or stir in another 1/2 cup milk for a creamier body. The texture is intentionally chewy, not gloppy or soggy. Top with desired toppings (a drizzle of maple syrup is a must).
