The weather here this weekend has been so fall-ish. And fall is my FAVORITE. I love everything about it...
pumpkin spice candles, fall leaves, boots, sweaters, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bars, pumpkin bread, and so on.
So when I saw this recipe on pinterest, and woke up to a "chilly" morning, I decided to whip this up for me and the hubs.
Like I said, I first found the recipe on pinterest, but I made a few small changes.
This makes 2 servings.
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup steel-cut oatmeal (or the regular stuff)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
maple syrup to taste
Bring the water to a boil. Add the oatmeal and lower heat to low. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until water is absorbed.
When oatmeal is *almost* done (just a little water remaining), add the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice, stirring to combine.
Serve with maple syrup and pecans.
