This pumpkin oatmeal with chia seeds is super filling and comforting. It’s a perfect breakfast for the fall and winter months. If you have a pumpkin puree in your fridge, you can cook this oatmeal in under 10 minutes.
This pumpkin oatmeal with chia seeds has a light aroma of the popular winter spices. I used allspice and cinnamon and you can also add nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Or you can also use a pumpkin pie spice which is a blend of these spices.
I always cook just one portion of this oatmeal because my husband doesn’t like it. If you want to make a bigger batch, just multiply the ingredients.
This pumpkin oatmeal with chia seeds tastes best when it’s fresh so don’t wait too long before eating it.
