Foodie Friday: Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I was inspired by Emily's post on Pumpkin Steal Cut Oats to make some pumpkin pie oatmeal for my and my oldest pumpkin the other day. I had everything on hand to whip up this yummy and filling dessert breakfast. It got rave reviews from everyone that tried it. All two of us. So if you are up early this Black Friday and needing some fuel for a long day of shopping, try this in place of that slice of pumpkin pie. (You can always save that for later.)

Ingredients:
-1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
-1 1/4 cup water
-1/2 cup pumpkin puree
