Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal with Caramel Sauce

Yields 1 serving


1/2 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup buttermilk*
1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 Tbsp light-brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch ginger
1 dash salt
1 - 2 Tbsp caramel sauce or caramel ice cream topping
1 Tbsp chopped walnuts or pecans, optional


In a large microwave safe bowl, whisk together oats, milk, buttermilk, pumpkin puree, light-brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt. Microwave mixture on HIGH power for 3 1/2 minutes, then allow oatmeal to rest a few minutes (for a thinner consistency, if desired, pour in additional milk or you could use half and half). Drizzle oatmeal with caramel sauce and sprinkle with optional chopped nuts. Serve warm.

*or an additional 1/4 cup milk plus 3/4 tsp lemon juice
