Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • pinch of salt

Candied Pecans

  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup


  1. Start on the candied pecans. Add the pecans to a pan with the butter, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Sauté on medium to high heat until crunchy and then remove from the heat.
  2. While the pecans are cooking start on the oatmeal. Add the oats, pumpkin, and almond milk to a pot and cook as you would any oatmeal.
  3. Add in the cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Simmer until thick.
  4. Add the oatmeal to a bowl. Top with the candied pecans. I also suggest topping with more cinnamon and a splash of maple syrup.
  5. Enjoy!
