I have one oatmeal lover and one who is not so big on it, but in the fall and winter when a hearty, warm breakfast is called for, there aren't too many things that satisfy quite as much. I've been feeling inspired to try some new things by the food network, so in an attempt to make oatmeal more appealing, I gave it a new twist. I think it's the best oatmeal I've ever tasted! I'm sharing the recipe, but if you try it, give credit to my little ol' blog here, please.
2 cups water boiled with a pinch of salt
1 cup oats
8 oz. pumpkin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
maple syrup to taste
vanilla stevia (to reduce the amount of maple syrup needed)
Cook until oats are tender, serve topped with butter and milk. YUM!
