Pumpkin Oatmeal is the perfect reminder of fall. Made with various delicious warm spices, this Pumpkin Oatmeal is naturally vegan and cooked in the microwave for 2 minutes. Pumpkin contains antioxidants, including alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin, which can fight free radicals and prevent damaging your cells. On the other hand, Oats are naturally gluten-free and contain soluble fiber beta-glucan. Beta-glucans can decrease LDL and total cholesterol levels, reduce blood sugar and insulin response, stimulate feelings of fullness, and increase the number of good bacteria in the digestive tract. So you can quickly whip up this Pumpkin Oatmeal for breakfast and enjoy a bowl of warm comfort. 
 

Can You Microwave Cooked Oatmeal?

Yes, you can reheat the oatmeal that was cooked in the microwave. It will only take 1-2 minutes to reheat. Place the oatmeal into a microwave-safe bowl and add a little milk or water. Cover the oatmeal and heat it in 30-second bursts until it is warm. 
 

Is Microwave Oatmeal Better With Milk Or Water?

Oatmeal is better with milk. While you can make oatmeal with water, it will not be as delicious, and you will not have as much protein in your oatmeal. In addition to this, water will give the oats a gummy texture instead of a creamy texture. 

Is Oatmeal Good For Weight Loss?

Yes, oatmeal is great for weight loss. Studies have shown that oatmeal can stimulate weight loss and decrease your risks of heart disease and decrease blood sugar levels.

Instructions

In a large microwave-safe bowl, add oats and coconut milk. Make sure you use a large bowl as the oats will bubble up, and you don't want them to spill all over your microwave. Heat the oats in the microwave on high for 2 minutes until the oats are cooked. 

Remove the oats from the microwave and stir in the pumpkin purée, agave nectar, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, sea salt, and vanilla extract.

If desired, divide the oats between 2 soup bowls and top with the peanut butter chips, vegan white chocolate chips, and walnuts.
