  • 1 cup LIBBY'S 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • One 8-ounce container vanilla low-fat or nonfat yogurt

  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped toasted pecans
In medium saucepan, bring water, pie spice and salt to a boil; stir in oats. Return to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook 1 minute for quick oats, 5 minutes for old fashioned oats or until most of liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Stir in pumpkin and brown sugar; cook 1 minute.

Spoon oatmeal into four cereal bowls. Top with yogurt and pecans.

This really takes oatmeal to a new level. I got this from the Quaker Oats people.
