Waking up to Pumpkin...mmmm!

My favorite thing about fall is PUMPKIN! I really truly love all things flavored pumpkin. My friend recently stopped by an apple orchard and picked me up some homemade pumpkin butter! It is so delicious ... I have eaten it off a spoon, topped English Muffins, spread it on toast, slathered it on an apple, and then I thought....what if I put this deliciousness in OATMEAL!!!
And so I introduce to you PUMPKIN OATMEAL!

I was really in the mood for oatmeal, so I just pulled out the good ole Quaker Oats box and followed the recipe on the back with my few "special" additions! It was so yummy! The prefect fall treat!
3/4 cup Oats
1 1/2 cups Milk
Dash of salt
1 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 cup Pumpkin Butter (I didn't actually measure this, just tasted as I added so if 1/4 cup isn't enough just add more!!)
On the stove boil your milk with the salt. Stir in the Oats, Pumpkin Pie Spice and Pumpkin Butter. Cook about 5 minutes stirring occasionally. I topped mine with a little bit of cool whip and cinnamon sugar!!


  1. YUM! I've been wanting to make pumpkin oatmeal. If only I would wake up early enough! haha... It's too bad MY MAN doesn't like pumpkin stuff. How crazy is he?
