Really enjoyed this oatmeal. I didn't have blackberries, so omitted those, and left out the pecans to lower the calories. I only put 1 T brown sugar in, and it was still very good. I might use someone else's suggestion to try the pumpkin pie spice, and see if that makes any difference. Great breakfast for a chilly fall morning!
I gave this recipe 3 stars. I made this for my breakfast. I changed the recipe slightly. I took the advice of another member and used raisins as I didn't have blackberries. I also added 2 pinches of splenda gran. to sweeten a bit more. I used the pecans. I think this would be great with walnuts. Overall this was good and I'd probably make it again with more spices and more raisins. Thanks for posting a good recipe. Christine (internetnut)
I made this water, quick oats, pumpkin, 2T white sugar, and 1 1/2 T pumpkin pie spice. I also used milk to thin it out when I served it. Everyone loved it even my picky 7 year old. Thanks for sharing!!
This is so good. It's so hard to get my son to eat breakfast anymore. He loves pumpkin though. Anything to do with pumpkin and he'll eat it. He went nuts over this and said he'd eat every morning if I made this. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe and helping to get my son to eat breakfast again.
Wow, this really does taste like pumpkin pie! I used 1/3 cup of pumpkin puree and brown sugar instead of Splenda (it gives me migraines). I didn't have blackberries so I threw in 1 tbsp of raisins and I used toasted pecan halves. This was absolutely wonderful. I just wish I could tolerate artificial sweeteners- with so much sugar in it, I shouldn't be eating this regularly.
