Print Recipe


  • 2 cups 1-minute oats (also called quick-cooking oats, not instant)
  • 1 1/4 cup almond milk (or your favorite type of milk)
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch chips optional
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips optional
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts optional
  • whipped topping optional


  • In a microwave safe bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients except the optional toppings, walnuts and whipped topping.
  • Microwave on high for approximately two minutes, or until oatmeal is desired consistency (for thinner oatmeal, add more milk, for thicker, less milk).
  • Allow to rest for about a minute and serve hot. Top with walnuts, extra butterscotch, and white chocolate chips, and whipped topping for an extra tasty treat!


  • Get ingredients ready the night before to make this breakfast even quicker! Measure out the oats into the bowl you'll be cooking them in. In another container measure out the remaining ingredients (except for the toppings) and store in the refrigerator. Next morning, just combine and heat!
  • Pumpkin pie filling is not the same thing as canned pumpkin. Pie filling already has milk, sweetener and spices added to the pumpkin. If you want to use pumpkin pie filling instead of canned pumpkin, use 1 and  1/2 cups of pie filling, omit the brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice, and reduce the milk to 1/2 cup.
  • Nutritional information is for two servings of the oatmeal without toppings.
