Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Ok Peeps… do I have a recipe for you! Back in September, I was determined to master homemade, dairy free, pumpkin lattes.  I was not very successful in this venture but something totally yummy did come out of it.  Pumpkin pie oatmeal! I had measured out tablespoon servings of pumpkin puree and froze them on a cookie sheet then bagged them for use later.  (Note: I used plain puree not pie filling which is loaded with other crap.) Because I like this so much, I thought I would share with you fine people. 

 
1/2 c oatmeal
1 c Almond Breeze almond/coconut milk (sweetened)
2 tbsp. pumpkin puree
3-4 dashes of pumpkin pie spice
3-4 dashes of ground cinnamon
1 tsp of sugar (optional but I think it makes the dish)
Microwave as directed 
 
Sometimes I will add a tbsp. of crushes pecans and 1/4c of Craisins to mix things up a little.  Also, if you do not like your oatmeal runny, cut back on the milk.

When I think far enough a head, I will make this as overnight oats (premade but not cooked, in a container and left in the fridge to soak overnight).  I think it seems creamier but that could just be my imagination.

If you try this, I would love to hear what you think of it!
