Pumpkin oatmeal is a healthy and satisfying fall breakfast option! We’ll walk you through using rolled or steel-cut oats in this recipe and provide an overnight oats option!


  • 1 cup rolled oats (or steel-cut oats)
  • 2 cups milk or water
  • 24 tablespoons brown sugar, depending on sweet preference– also sub maple syrup!
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 teaspoon pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice



  1. Add the milk or water, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, salt, and pumpkin spice to a small pot and bring to a simmer.
  2. Add the 1 cup of oats and stir to combine. 
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally for 15-20 minutes until most liquid has been absorbed and your desired consistency has been reached.
  4. Let stand covered for 1-2 minutes prior to consuming.


  1. Combine all ingredients together in a deep bowl and store to combine. Cook on high for ~2 minutes, stir and cook an additional 30-60 seconds. Let stand for 1-2 minutes to thicken before consuming.

Overnight Oats:

  1. Combine all ingredients together in a jar or glass container, stir and place in the fridge overnight or for at least 8 hours.

Steel Cut Oats:

  1. Steel cut oats will require more liquid and longer cooking time, check the cooking instructions on the package of your steel-cut oats for specifics.


Top with a pat of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup to serve. Makes two bowls of pumpkin spice oatmeal.
