Warming Pumpkin-Flavored Breakfast Oatmeal

A tasty and warming bowl of delicious breakfast oatmeal with a pumpkin flavor!


  • 1 cup coconut milk from a can (shake well before using)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree (or more depending on how much pumpkin flavor you want)
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon honey or 2 tablespoons maple syrup for vegan version
  • 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • pinch of salt

optional toppings: 

  • blueberry jam 
  • chocolate drizzle
  • coconut shreds
  • chopped nuts
  • maple syrup drizzle


  1. In a deep sauce pan add the milk and water and bring to a boil. Lower heat and then add oats, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey or maple syrup, and salt. Stir to combine. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes until desired consistency. I like my oats more on the ‘watery’ side so I do not overcook them. If you like your oats thicker, then just continue to cook until most of the liquid has been used up.
  2. Top with sliced bananas. Enjoy!


  • If you are using a light variety of coconut milk you probably don’t need the extra water – just use a little bit more milk. Since I usually have full fat coconut milk on hand I like to add the extra water to dilute the milk a bit.
