PUMPKIN PIE OATMEAL

I have been on a real oatmeal kick lately.  With the weather cooling off I find that oatmeal is the perfect Fall breakfast.  I love how easy it is to change the flavor of oatmeal with simple variations.  You may remember my past post for Banana Bread Oatmeal (click here for the post).  Here is my latest oatmeal creation that is now a permanent member of my oatmeal rotation.  The addition of the flax meal really gives this recipe a wonderful oatmeal/cream of wheat texture.   I just can’t seem to get enough pumpkin this time of year!

INGREDIENTS – Makes two smaller or one large serving

¼ cup old fashioned oats (GFree)
¾-1 cup water
½ cup canned organic pumpkin
½ cup applesauce (click here for my applesauce recipe)
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 Tbs flax meal
Stevia or maple syrup to sweeten
 
Top with:
 
Raisins
Chopped walnuts
 

Place the first five ingredients (oats through pumpkin pie spice) into a pot and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, drop the temp to med-low and simmer until the mixture thickens (5-10 minutes).

Turn off the heat, add the flax meal, stir to incorporate, and allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes to thicker further.

Sweeten to taste and top with raisins, walnuts, and maybe a drizzle of maple syrup.
