It’s that time of year, and we’ve got a quick-and-easy recipe from scratch for the time-crunched athlete, courtesy of Outside Magazine. If you’re a pumpkin freak, this breakfast dish could be right up your alley. Either way, it’s a spiced-up alternative to traditional oatmeal for those autumn mornings.

Servings: 2

Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1.2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (also called old-fashioned oats)
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin-pie spice
  • 2 tablespoons pecans, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Directions:

  1. Combine pumpkin and salt with three cups of water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Add oats and pumpkin-pie spice. When mixture starts to bubble, reduce heat to low. Stir occasionally until oats are cooked and thickened, about eight minutes.
  3. Top with pecans and maple syrup.
