I had some pumpkin left in a can from a recipe I made and wanted to find a way to use it. This is what I came up with.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl big enough to allow for cooking expansion place the oats and oat bran.
  2. Add water and microwave for 1 min 20 seconds and check it.
  3. If you want it thinned add some more water and microwave for another 30.
  4. Immediately add the pumpkin and spice and stir it in vigorously to mix well.
  5. Add as much sweetening as you like.

This is a really warming, creamy and tasty way to start the day. I loved it, but next time I would reduce the pumpkin pie spice a tad as I found it quite dominant. I used 1 ts unrefinded sugar and that was perfect for me.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper, I cant wait to have it again.

It must just be me, but this wasn't very appetizing. I had to doctor it up a lot to make it edible. It just tasted like it was missing something and I couldn't get it sweet enough. Thanks for sharing though!

This made a nice bowl of warm goodness!! I used 2/3 cup water, and it was still plenty thick -- I think less water would have made it too gloppy and gluey. I used two heaping tablespoons of pumpkin... which I don't really like very much, and this was my first time trying it in oatmeal. I was pleasantly surprised. I also added two packets of Splenda. Thanks for posting!
