What better way to start your morning than with a delicious bowl of cinnamon and spice oatmeal? This creamy oatmeal is the perfect comfort food for those colder days, and it’s easy to make.

Just add some pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to your favorite oatmeal recipe. Top it off with some pumpkin seeds for a little crunch, and you’ve got a delicious breakfast that will make you feel warm and cozy all morning long.

If you don’t have time to make your own pumpkin puree, you can always use a canned version.

One thing I like to do is, when I’m making pumpkin soup, I’ll save some of the cooked pumpkin cubes to make this oatmeal the next day. That way I save some time when I’m prepping breakfast.

What You Need to Make Cinnamon and Spice Oatmeal

The ingredients for this recipe are very simple. All you need are regular rolled oats, oat milk, brown sugar, pumpkin, and spices.

If you are not a fan of pumpkin or don’t have any, you can use apple instead (or apple puree).

As for the spices, you can always decide not to use some of them or add any others that you like.

When adding the toppings, get creative! Try nuts, seeds, raisins, cranberries, or another type of dried fruit.

When the pumpkin is nice and soft and there is no water left, mash it until you get a nice and smooth puree, and reserve.

Now it’s time to prepare the oatmeal. Add the oats and the oatmilk into a small pan and let it cook for about 5 minutes on low heat.

Add the rest of the brown sugar, the pumpkin puree (reserve just a tsp of the puree to add it on top) and all the spices.

Mix it well, and let it cook for another minute.

Pour the oatmeal into a bowl, use some of the puree on top, and sprinkle it with pumpkin seeds and cinnamon.
