This pumpkin pie oatmeal is so good, it’s almost like having dessert for breakfast!
Wouldn’t it be awesome if every autumn when pumpkin season begins, we could just whip out a big pumpkin pie for breakfast and not worry about it being unhealthy? Would you be surprised if I told you you can? Well… almost. This clean eating pumpkin pie oatmeal recipe is so darn close to eating pumpkin pie, you’ll swear you’re eating dessert for breakfast!
A while back, I started “The Oatmeal Project“. My intent was to create 365 ways to eat your morning oats. The response I have gotten has been so amazing, that I’m considering starting an entirely new blog for this little project of mine! How fun would that be!?!
But until I do, I had to share this incredible oatmeal recipe with you. It was submitted by Lynn (Comment #96). In one word, A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!
This one is right up there with the peanut butter oatmeal for me. Definitely one of my favorites so far. If you like pumpkin pie, you’ll love having this for breakfast! The aromatic pumpkin spices, crunchy pecans, and delicately sweet maple syrup will make you beg for the holidays to come back. It might even force a Christmas tune or two out of you. You never know!

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Recipe
- 1 cup dry oats, cooked
- ½ cup pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (no sugar added)
- 4 large egg whites (optional)
- 1 cup pecans (1/4 cup per serving – optional)
- maple syrup to taste
- Cook the oats according to package directions.
- In the last 5 minutes of cooking (just take a guess, the oats should basically be pretty much done cooking), quickly stir in the eggs, being sure to stir vigorously so they get well-distributed. Then, stir in the pumpkin purée and pumpkin spice.
- Put some oats in a bowl and top with pecans and maple syrup.
- Note: the egg whites were added in order to get more protein. They are optional.
Could I use egg beaters egg whites? If so… how much? Also I have pumpkin I steamed.. I’m assuming that the pumpkin you used was not canned? I’m new to clean Eating….
You can use canned or fresh, cooked pumpkin. Doesn’t matter, just measure it out. I don’t personally recommend egg beaters, and I don’t use them. So I’m not sure how much to use here. Really sorry.
I made this today using steel cut oatmeal, and doubled the recipe so I had enough oatmeal for breakfasts for the week. I didn’t find that it had enough flavor, I think the spice ratio was probably fine with rolled oats, but it just lacked flavor the way I did it. I don’t know what I did wrong, but I’ll just throw in some more of the spices and hope for the best! It definitely was edible, and I added some raisins (not sure how clean that is? I’m new to clean eating). If raisins are ok for future oatmeal recipes, I’m dying for an oatmeal recipe that tastes like the raisins and spice packets from Quaker. They were my favorite breakfasts at my grandmother’s house as a kid!
Try making the recipe as is and see what you think of the flavor. Raisins are fine, so long as there is nothing else added to them.
Walden Farms has a zero calorie maple syrup that is delish….. Just saying. This sounds amazing!
Dana – I doubt it’s clean though. I haven’t found a zero calorie food yet that is anything close to clean and natural. What’s in the ingredient list?
Hmmm…I think this would be great with a sweet potato puree and cinnamon and hazelnut spices.
Tameka – Sure would!
I tried this recipe with rolled oats and I found it to be pretty bland as well. I’m new to the healthy/clean eating lifestyle, so I could just be so used to the processed stuff. It’s not easy to adjust the taste buds.
Kim – Ya, don’t underestimate that. It does take a while for your tastebuds to enjoy healthier options. But you can always add a bit more spice and sweetener until you adjust.
I made this on Sunday. I made the full four servings even through I’m the only one would would eat it. (I’m divorced, so it’s just me and my son). I ate one portion sunday morning and have had one each yesterday and today. yesterday, I ate it room temp and commuting 30 min to work. today I warmed it up. It’s amazing. When heating it, I added about 2 tsp of maple syrup and a splash of almond milk (vanilla unsweetened). Delish!
Laurie – Fantastic! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
I love this recipe, did you know it’s featured on Buzzfeed?
Tesia – No! I had no idea! Thanks so much! 😀
How do you think this would freeze? I work in remote areas, and like to pre make clean food for when I’m gone…just not sure how this would go over? Is everyone just storing it in the refrigerator for a week? Or freezing? Great recipe by the way!!!
Makynleigh – Oatmeal freezes pretty well.
I’m trying to save this recipe to my ZipList account and when i click ‘save’ nothing happens. Could you help? Thanks
Christine – Are you logged into Ziplist? Is the button bring up anything at all?
On one of the cooking shows they prepared oatmeal with fruit (no surprise), but they used the fruit juice to cook the oatmeal! On this week’s schedule to try………….
Katherine – Interesting! I’ve used juice in place of milk before, but never cooked it with juice. Hmmm..
Did make this back in Nov. It is just a tiny bit bland but that was ok. It’s really awesome! My kids ran out of the pecans and didn’t like the taste without them so I had to give them more 🙂 Thank you for all these recipes!
Sharon – Glad you found a way to make it work!
This sounds so good!
And I love that you include the nutritional values. Makes enjoying it that much easier : )
Linda – My pleasure! 🙂
It was simply awesome,looking forward to having more like this
Jessy – So glad you liked it! 😀
I want to try this but I don’t eat any sweeteners except fruit.
Rebecca – You could always used some mashed banana for sweetener.
I added a heaping tablespoon of Greek yogurt for added protein instead of the egg whites.
Amelia – Great! 😀
I have been making this for 3 years now. My family loves it!!
Tenika – Fantastic!! That makes my day!! 😀
