Pumpkin Pecan Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pecan Oatmeal

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • milk, if desired

In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil over medium heat.  Add the pumpkin, oats, pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar, vanilla and salt, and stir to combine.  Return to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes.

Spoon into bowls and top with the Greek yogurt and toasted pecans.  Add milk, too, if desired.  That's how I like mine!

Yields about 3 servings.
