Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

I love oatmeal just as much as the next size 12 girl who longs to be a size 8, but I can only eat so much of it before my taste buds start getting board and long for something a bit more creative…therefore, I’ve added one simple ingredient to my morning meal and have fallen in love with oatmeal all over again.

Pumpkin Pie Spice Oatmeal 🙂


What You Need:

1/2 cup quick cooking oats

2-3 teaspoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons raisins or dried cranberries

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.  Add water (based on the measurements placed on your oatmeal container) and microwave for about 1 minute.  Stir and devour.

Every Monday is a “Reci-bee” post, where I share my favorite recipes, recipe collections, and cooking and baking hints and tips.

    I use the pumpkin pie spice sometimes, too. You can also stir in about one-quarter to half cup canned pumpkin to beef up that pumpkin-y taste.

    Another yum-tastic way is to dice up some frozen peaches, a wee bit o’sweetener of your choice, and for the liquid, substitute half of the water for lowfat/skim milk. Peaches and creamy goodness. I usually prep it the night before so the oats soak up the liquid, heat and then splash a little more milk for serving.
