Wonderful breakfast idea for those who love pumpkin(like me)This recipe is a slightly altered version that I got from


  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Cook over low heat for 20 minutes, or until thick.
  3. If you want something a bit creamier, use skim milk instead of water.
  4. For Vegan do not use milk.

Good idea but definitely not the recipe for us. Even after quadrupling the sugar (used real sugar- no artificial sugar in this house), adding copious amounts of nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla, all we can taste is pumpkin. No sweet, no spice, just pumpkin. But I like the idea so I'll play with the amounts. Thanks for the idea though!

Very tasty breakfast. I cooked this in the microwave for about 5 minutes and it worked well. Also, I added ground flax, stevia, pecans, cinnamon, and milk instead of water. It was a nice change from my regular oatmeal and I'd definitely make it again. Thanks!

What a fantastic idea! I had some leftover canned pumpkin from another recipe and thought it might be good in oatmeal. I wanted a simpler recipe than the others I found on Zaar and this one fit my needs perfectly. I used quick-cooking oats and skipped the sweetener (I'm cutting back on real and artificial sugars). I was in a hurry, so I used the microwave with good results.
