Fast and easy 2-minute Pumpkin Oatmeal is a healthy and delicious way to start your morning!
I know, I know-it's not even September yet and here I go with the pumpkin! To be honest I was in World Market last week and they had Pumpkin Spice coffee set up for taste testing and I had one sip and it was all over for me-I'm in full-blown fall mode in the kitchen, starting with this microwave pumpkin pie oatmeal!
Why I love this recipe
- This Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal took only 2 minutes to make so it's perfect for those busy weekday mornings.
- The oatmeal is filling so you don't get those mid-morning snack cravings.
- Pumpkin is full of vitamins and antioxidants so you can feel good about starting your day on the right foot! (Learn more about health benefits of pumpkin here.)

Step by step
I make this easy pumpkin oatmeal in the microwave, fast and simple!
- Mix ingredients in a bowl
- Microwave for one minute
- Top with pecans, sprinkle with cinnamon, and indulge in pure pumpkin oatmeal delight!
If you only have old fashioned oats I would make this on the stovetop by cooking the oatmeal in the milk until it's cooked through, then combining the remaining ingredients and serving.
To make your own pumpkin pie spice combine 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ¼ teaspoon ground ginger, and ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves.
