Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

makes 1 serving


  • 1/2 C old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 C 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 wild blueberries (optional)


1) Put the oats, milk, sliced banana, and cinnamon into a small pot on the stove. (This will also work in the microwave — simply combine all the recipe ingredients in a microwave safe bowl (I recommend mashed banana instead of sliced for the microwave version) and cook on high for 2 minutes!)

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! :)

      Great flavor but about half the pumpkin would be better. I also used coconut sugar in place of the banana.

      • 6

        Glad you enjoyed it! The pumpkin is better balanced with the volume from the banana, so makes sense that less would be better if using coconut sugar instead. :)

    Sounds yumm… Going to try it soon!!

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

  5. 10

    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!

    • 14

      It always worked fine for me, but maybe your banana was bigger or something! I’d add extra milk instead of water – adds to the flavor :)

    Really enjoyed.

    How can I make this in a microwave?

    • 17

      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?

  11. 20

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

    Have to try this recipe, love everything with pumpkin and this oatmeal seems like a perfect way to start a healthy fall morning. Thanks for sharing!

  13. 23

    Just made this. A little bland, but I added some maple syrup to sweeten it. I suggest adding some soaked dates to this recipe to boost sweetness/flavour!

  14. 25

    I just made this recipe, but a little different and thought I would share.

    I tripled the recipe, combined all of the ingredients and put into 5 mason jars and baked them for 25 minutes on 350. This way they are all cooked and only need a minute in the microwave in the am. With the mason jar lid, they should stay all week and will be super helpful for a rushing hubby for the next 5 days.

    Is this one serving?

  16. 29

    Sounds like the perfect way, to start any fall morning!! Yum!!

    Just tried this, it’s delicious!

  18. 31

    Mmmm, chopped medjool dates — perfect addition!

  19. 32

    This looks not only delicious, but also absolutely gorgeous! Nothing screams Autumn better than a cozy bowl of pumpkin oats ^^ I know I’m ages late, but may I ask where you purchased your bowl? I’d die to have it for my morning oats!

  20. 33

    Sounds tasty. I’m not a fan of canned goods. Can I cook pumpkin and use that in recipe? Would I have to make any adjustments to your recipe?

    We had this today. It was delicious! We added a little maple syrup and chopped nuts.
