Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

This healthy oatmeal seriously tastes just like pumpkin pie! Hard to believe there’s no added sugar — yay for ripe banana and flavorful spices. Please try this recipe, you won’t regret it.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

makes 1 serving


  • 1/2 C old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 C skim milk
  • 1 ripe banana, sliced
  • 2 hefty shakes cinnamon
  • 1/4 C pureed canned pumpkin
  • 1 small shake ground cloves
  • 1 small shake ground nutmeg
  • Handful frozen blueberries (optional)


1) Put the oats, milk, sliced banana, and cinnamon into a small pot on the stove.

2) Stir continuously over medium high heat for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture gets thick and creamy (and starts slightly bubbling). Stir in the frozen blueberries now, if you like.

3) Turn down heat to medium low and add in the canned pumpkin and a small shake each of ground cloves and ground nutmeg. These two spices make this recipe — don’t skip them!

4) Serve hot and enjoy :)

    I am DEFINITELY going to try this. I would like to have seen the nutrition panel, though. If I like it, I’m going to multiply it by 4 and save it to my recipes. Thanks for posting!!!

    Is there a substitute for bananas in things like this… and virtually every other recipe that contains them? I’m highly allergic and don’t want to die, but would love to try this recipe!

      You could try just making it without banana and adding some brown sugar on top at the end to mimic the sweetness the banana creates! As far as baking recipes, applesauce can be substituted for bananas – but you may want to add a little extra sugar since again, the banana will make things sweeter. Good luck! :)

    Do you have a sauce for pumpkin/squash ravioli that isn’t heavy?

    Every recipe I see is heavy on butter, etc. I think a tomato based sauce would not work well with the sweetness of the pumpkin pasta — I’ll google some and see what I can find. Thanks anyway!

    Uhm, this looks delicious and just in time for fall. I know what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow! Divine!

    I’m in the middle of making this! Is t that too little liquid? I’m adding some hot water, because it looks awfully pasty. Smells great though!

    Really enjoyed.

    How can I make this in a microwave?

      Just put everything except for the blueberries in a bowl, mix it up, and microwave 2 to 3 minutes on high. Stir halfway during the time and add in the frozen blueberries then.

    Do you know how to make it with steal cut oats?

    Can you quantify “a hefty shake” and “a small shake” for the spices? Some of mine don’t have shaker tops…?
