    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.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper, I cant wait to have it again.<br/>Made and reviewed for one of my babies during PAC October 2012.

    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!

    This was very good and I will be making this often. I would not change a thing. I used 1 tsp splenda brown sugar blend. Thanks annacia for posting!

    What a great bowl of oatmeal! The oat bran makes it a bit more creamy than just rolled oats. The flavors were great. I used fat-free half and half on top, with a little butter.

    This hit the spot on this chilly morning. My son and I love oatmeal in the morning and this was something different for us. We really enjoyed it. I followed the recipe as written other then I used milk instead of water (personal preference) and I didn't have oat bran so didn't add that. We liked this a lot and will be making again. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
