Cinnamon And Spice Oatmeal Recipe is a delicious and healthy recipe that satisfies your sweet and savory desires. Oats are high in soluble fiber, which helps lower LDL cholesterol, control blood sugar levels, and maintain bowel regularity. And the cinnamon-spice flavor is perfect for the holidays!
Oatmeal is a quick-cooking whole grain that’s easy on your digestive system because it’s low in phytic acid and naturally gluten-free – two substances that can cause inflammation in some people with certain dietary restrictions.
Why I Love This Recipe?
Cinnamon And Spice Oatmeal Recipe is great because it’s a filling, healthy breakfast you can eat on your way to work or school. It’s also super fast to make –you could probably make the whole thing from start to finish in less than 10 minutes!
Because I normally don’t cook my Oatmeal at home (too lazy), I was skeptical about how it would taste when made with canned pumpkin puree.
How To Make Cinnamon And Spice Oatmeal Recipe?
- ½ cup rolled oats
- ¼ cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1 ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp. water
- Mixing bowl
- Mixing spoon
- Dry measuring cup
- Oven-safe glass or ceramic baking dish (8-inch square or smaller)
Preheat your oven to 350⁰ F.
Whisk the oats, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt in a mixing bowl.
Mix the maple syrup and water in a separate container until the maple syrup has dissolved into the water. Add this to your oat mixture and stir with a spoon until well-mixed. It should have a thick consistency like brownie batter (as shown below).
Transfer your oat mixture to an oven-safe glass or ceramic baking dish.
Bake for 15 – 20 minutes (or until the top is lightly browned). Let cool for 2 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

What can I put in Oatmeal to lose weight?
