Wonderful breakfast idea for those who love pumpkin(like me)This recipe is a slightly altered version that I got from Sparkpeople.com
- 1⁄2 cup old-fashioned oatmeal, uncooked
- 1⁄2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 cup water
- 1 pinch ground cardamom
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon Splenda sugar substitute
- Mix all ingredients.
- Cook over low heat for 20 minutes, or until thick.
- If you want something a bit creamier, use skim milk instead of water.
- 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.
