As a kid, my mother would make us oatmeal on cold days. She would add in things like applesauce, fruit compotes, and chocolate chips to jazz up the flavor a bit. Mom was always a very good cook. My sister’s and I looked forward to eating mom’s oatmeal. especially before we had to board the bus in the blistering Michigan-winter cold.
Imagine how nice our bellies felt as we made our way down the crisp and cool driveway. I love sending my kids off to school on a cold day knowing that they are well-fed and feeling cozy from the inside out, don’t you?
Anyway, this recipe for homemade pumpkin spice oatmeal is just what the mother ordered lol! It’s Cinderella approved 🙂
Oatmeal cooking up on the stove always smells delicious and with adding pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice to it makes the aroma heavenly. As much as I love oatmeal I’ve never thought to put pumpkin in with it. The taste is sweet and yet light and would be perfect served for any occasion. This would be lovely with some dried cranberries and nuts too.
