10-Minute Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Recipe {www.TwoHealthyKitchens.com}Ahhhh … the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend is coming up …

Know what’s good for breakfast?

Leftover pie!

You know that, right!?!?

It’s sort of a universal truth. It’s really why you should always bake an extra pie (or two).

Mmmmmm … especially sweet, creamy pumpkin pie. With just a hint of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.

We all pretend that the turkey is the centerpiece of Thanksgiving, but we secretly know what the real showstopper is. Yep – it’s pumpkin pie!

And on the morning after Thanksgiving, when you rush out the door to the insanity that is Black Friday (oh, you crazy, crazy bargain shoppers – Gretchen will be out there with you!) … or when you come padding into the kitchen in your flannel jammies and bunny slippers (ah, yes, you snuggly sleepyheads – Shelley is proud to call herself one of you!) … what do you really, really want for breakfast? Uh-huh – more pumpkin pie!

Come on – admit it! Maybe you even steal a tiny sliver when you think nobody’s watching. Oh, we get it! Yep – we do it, too!

But can you really serve leftover pumpkin pie to the family for breakfast? And what if you’re hosting overnight guests? Are you planning to call that brunch? No. Not so much.

Once again, we’ve got you covered!

This oatmeal has all the flavor, all the warm spices, all the pumpkiny pumpkiness that you’re craving when you sneak that little wedge of pie out of the fridge. But, it’s so guilt-free! Yeah – kinda what you need after that big meal the day before, right?

And it’s super-fast! As in, really almost as fast as cutting a tiny sliver off that pie … and then another tiny sliver … and another …

Yes, it really is this simple! Once the water and milk are boiling, you add the other ingredients (except those cranberries!), cook for a couple minutes more, then stir in the cranberries or sprinkle them as garnish. So easy!

In fact, you really can whip this together in 10 minutes flat! If you’re off to the sales and need some serious stick-to-your ribs nourishment to keep you energized, then this is just the thing! And in only 10 minutes, you’ll still be able to score that big-screen TV (while supplies last)!

Or, you can be the hostess with the mostess, and at whatever point your family and overnight guests come stumbling down the stairs hoping for some coffee and brunch … why, you’ll be ready with this delicious oatmeal in a jiffy!

  1. Just made this morning, scaled down for 2. Wonderful flavor! Never thought to add pumpkin to our oatmeal before.
    We used stevia instead of the sugar, but everything else was the same.
    We’ll definitely do again, but maybe try in the microwave, so we only have the 2 bowls to clean. 🙂

  20. Made this for breakfast today and it is absolutely amazing!! I did however substitute a 1/4 cup of honey in place of the brown sugar to make it a tad more healthier and natural. Can’t wait to have it again tomorrow!! I also tried your Hoisin Mini-Meatloaf recipe and it was a total hit in our household. Thanks so much for your hard work and dedication to your readers!!

  29. I know it’s been a while, but I still spy on you! I made this recipe within a few hours of you posting it.. It was probably my first time eating oatmeal and this was probably the best way to start. I never thought you could make a breakfast this special!

    • We are just so thrilled that you tried this … and liked it so much! Thanks for stopping by to let us know – that really means a lot! It really is a wonderful, special breakfast – yet so fast and easy! Keep right on spying … we’re cool with that! 😀 ~G&S

  32. This is perfect! I love these fall flavors and especially love how quick and easy it is to whip up on a busy morning! I’m making this tomorrow for me and my daughter! Thanks…as always…great stuff!

    • Awwww … thanks, Caroline! I really do love how incredibly fast and easy, yet totally, surprisingly delicious this is! It’s so perfect for a cozy weekend breakfast, but seriously quick enough for busy weekday mornings! 😀 ~Shelley

    • Hey, Kiersten! Yep, yep – 10 minutes is totally do-able! Hope your weekend was fantastic, too! Did you Black Friday shop? I gotta tell ya – while Gretchen was out snagging the bargains, I was blissfully snoozing in my awesomely soft bed – and we were both happy as clams! This oatmeal is pretty much the one Black Friday thing we agree on! 😀 ~Shelley

    • Oh, Abbe – you are so right about this being perfect any day! This has become one of my family’s special go-to breakfasts. We all just love it! I think my very favorite part is the cranberries – that tangy burst of sweetness is the perfect accent! Hope you had a really special Thanksgivingkuh weekend with the kids back home! 😀 ~Shelley

  33. Okay, I too am the only one at my home to eat oatmeal but maybe, just maybe, as I send the aroma of pumpkin pie oatmeal through the house, I will actually have to share.

    • Well, for sure if there is any aroma that will do the trick – the smell of warm pumpkin pie wafting through your home is your best hope! If not, just hoard the leftovers for yourself and you’ve got breakfast all week! Yay, you!!! 😀 ~G&S

  34. Ladies, I love the sound of Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal!! Someone else recently mentioned pumpkin in oatmeal and I have yet to give it a try. I’m going to have to scale this down since I am the only one who will actually eat a bowl of oatmeal. lol Pinning now!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

    • Oh, Cindy – this is so, so good! It really might be the oatmeal that converts your family to become oatmeal lovers! But if you just can’t talk them into it, then not to worry – this is awesome reheated, too (you may want to thin it with a little bit of milk). You can make a batch and have yourself a happy, yummy breakfast for several days! (And, let’s be honest here – I have totally been known to eat it cold straight out of the fridge the next day – it is seriously, I-kid-you-not, fantastic that way, too!!!!) Have a really wonderful Thanksgiving! ~Shelley

    • Yep, yep! Amazing, indeed! We know you won’t exactly be celebrating Thanksgiving in Spain, Consuelo, but you know we’ve still gotta wish you an uber-Happy Thanksgiving, anyway! Or … well … at least a really fantastic weekend! 😀 ~G&S
