how to make Pumpkin Oatmeal
The making of this vegan oatmeal is easy peasy. Add the oats (Bob’s are my fav), milk, water, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin and spices to a small saucepan. Whisk all the ingredients together and then place on a burner at medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a slight boil (keep whisking). Then reduce the heat to medium/medium-low until the pumpkin oatmeal has thickened and the oats have softened. Remove the vegan pumpkin pie oatmeal from the stove and top with a little more maple syrup, oat milk, and pecans/walnuts. And then dig in. This vegan oatmeal is best fresh, as is ANY oatmeal. Cold oatmeal is not a good thing.
I’ve never been one to say no to pecans, maple syrup and pumpkin, and in this dish, you get all of them. The cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice lightly take over your tastebuds while the smooth texture of the pumpkin beautifully complements the spices. Load your vegan oatmeal with all the toppings in the world and the best part is that it takes no time at all to create a masterpiece on your stovetop! Unfortunately, this vegan pumpkin pie oatmeal isn’t Picky Husband Approved. He is not a fan of oatmeal and most likely never will be. But I think it’s too good to not post so you can decide for yourself!

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
- 1 cup oats
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 cups plantbased milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3-4 tbsp maple syrup to taste
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- pecans to top
- hemp seeds
- Add all the ingredients into a saucepan (except the pecans) and stir until thoroughly combined.
- Place the saucepan on high heat and bring the mixture to a boil then reduce to medium heat and cook until the oats are soft (roughly 3-5 minutes). Stir constantly so the mixture doesn’t stick.
- Once oats are soft, remove from the heat. Divide evenly among two bowls and top with desired toppings (pecans, hemp seeds, flax meal, raisins). I topped mine with a little extra maple syrup and a little extra almond milk.
