Pumpkin Oatmeal

I’ll usually open up a can of pumpkin to make this oatmeal & just mix up a batch of Pumpkin Muffins to finish off the can.

1/2 cup Sucanat or dark brown sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin or sweet potato puree
2 cups milk (I use almond due to allergies)
1-2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of salt (optional)
2 cups rolled oats

1. In a saucepan, add pumpkin & Sucanat. Slowly add milk & mix into the pumpkin & Sucanat. Add vanilla (if using), cinnamon, & salt (if using). Bring to gentle boil & stir in the oatmeal. Reduce the heat & simmer for 2-3 minutes, until the oatmeal is soft & creamy.

2. Spoon the oatmeal into bowls & let cool a bit… it’s hot! Serve with dried fruit, maple syrup or maybe even a dollop of whipped cream like pumpkin pie. ๐Ÿ˜€
