If past bad experience with mushy oatmeal has got you down, I’ve been there. Check out my 5 tips for the perfect non-mushy oatmeal in my article, Goodbye Glop, Hello Oatmeal!

Serves: 2 people
Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4-1/2 cup almond milk or other milk of choice
  • 2 Tbs pumpkin purée (canned is fine)
  • 1-2 Tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or mix of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger)
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries 
  • 1/4 cup pepita seeds


Bring water to a boil, then add salt and oats. Let simmer for about 5 minutes until oats have expanded and most of water has absorbed. Stir in pumpkin, enough milk to thin to desired amount, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice. Spoon into bowls and top with dried cranberries, pepita seeds, and extra maple syrup if desired.
