Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal

This is my favorite oatmeal flavor combination. It sounds a bit weird but it is so tasty and packed with nutrients and protein.


Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal
Serves: 2

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I use almond or rice)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or just cinnamon if you don't have pps)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (less if you don't have much of a sweet tooth or if you're using sweetened peanut butter)
Optional: raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruit. Fresh fruit slices would probably be good too but add those on top last.

Put everything in a small pot, even the dried fruit (I forgot mine at first, pretend it's in there). 


Heat on medium heat, stirring periodically. When it is almost as thick as you want it, remove it from the heat and let it cool a little. It'll thicken as it cools.

Pour into two bowls (unless you're really hungry like I was today then just eat it all yourself) and enjoy.

Nom nom nom ....

Thank you for reading,


  1. This sounds crazy-delicious and so warming now that the weather is starting to turn cold. :)

    1. Thanks for reading Melissa. It is super yummy plus with pumpkin season right around the corner, the price should come down on the canned pumpkin (if you're frugal like I am and hate paying $2.79/can for the organic stuff).
