Peanut Buttery Pumpkin Oatmeal(the breakfast of champions)

Oatmeal is so basic, and yet so misunderstood these days. Just a bowl of rolled oats that you pour a liquid into and cook to make a simple meal doesn’t sound too appetizing. Seriously though. It’s a blank slate. Be artful with it. Be creative with it. Use anything you want to help I to fit your specific palate. Experiment. It can be fun!

Think i buy enough?

So many people complain about how bland oatmeal is and how it is only for health nuts or older folks. Well I am one of the few who actually like it plain, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it your way! Take charge of that oatmeal like a boss! Crumble some pop-tarts in it or something. Or you can just put some of my favorite ingredients into a bowl of it and watch as your taste buds throw a party to celebrate this amazing breakfast. And by the way… You’re invited!

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Oatmeal

1 c. rolled oats (preferably the old fashioned kind)
½ c. milk alternative (So Delicious was my preferance)
4 tbsp. peanut butter
3 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp. pumpkin spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and all-spice)

-Pour the rolled oats into a large microwave safe bowl. Make sure it is large enough to be able to mix stuff around in.

-Add in the rest of your ingredients and mix everything together. It should be kind of liquidy.

-Microwave on high for 1 ½ min. or until all the liquid is absorbed (it should be a little sticky and peanut buttery).


The peanut butter gives it such a rich, sticky consistency, while the pumpkin and pumpkin spice add that festive fall touch. I love it! This just might be my new favorite way to make oatmeal. I guess I better stock up on pumpkin while I can, because I want to be eating this stuff all year long! (so much better than that pop-tart idea I had).

What do you put in your oatmeal?

  1. MmMMmM. Pumpkins, Peanut Butter, and Oatmeal… 😀

    1. I know right! Thats, like, the holy breakfast trinity right there!

  2. Oh that sounds yummy!
    I always sweeten my oatmeal with a spoonful of maple syrup.
    But pumpkin and pumpkin spices sound divine, especially right now. 🙂

    1. Then go make some! What are you waiting for?

  3. I never would have thought to combine pumpkin and peanut butter!

    My favorite oatmeal topping is soy sauce, green onions, and hot sauce.

    1. I would have never thought to try hot sauce or onion in oatmeal…but looks like a new experience for me soon! 🙂
