This morning I awoke to thick sheets of damp grey marine layer resting outside my windows. I put on a baggy sweatshirt and shivered in delight, images of pumpkin muffins and steaming hot mugs of cider racing through my brain.
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
|Prep time||2 minutes|
|Cook time||35 minutes|
|Total time||37 minutes|
- 1/3 cup steel cut oats
- 1 + 1/3 cup water
- 1 heaped tablespoon pumpkin puree
- 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 1 pinch salt
If it’s still too warm outside to make this, just shut your blinds, blast the air conditioner and shiver away over the stove top until this deliciousness appears and thaws you from the inside out. Or you could just be patient and wait until it’s actually cold out… I do not have that much self control.
I made just enough for a single serving, but only because we had a scant 1/3 cup of steel cut oats left. You can easily double, triple or octo-ply this to feed yourself and anyone lucky enough to smell the scent of fresh pumpkin pie wafting through the air.
