Pumpkin oatmeal with collagen, chia seeds and cinnamon on top.

I absolutely love this pumpkin collagen oatmeal. It has the most delightful creamy pumpkin flavor, with lots of festive Fall spices. It’s like pumpkin pie, but in healthy stovetop pumpkin oatmeal form!

There’s a lot of fiber in this recipe thanks to the pumpkin puree and the rolled oats. There is also extra protein thanks to the collagen peptides inside.

Recipe ingredients

  • Rolled oats– make sure they are certified gluten-free if this is important to you or your diet.
  • Pumpkin puree– fresh pumpkin puree or canned both work well here.
  • Almond milk– use almond milk to keep this recipe dairy-free. Feel free to use any milk of choice.
  • Cinnamon– Ceylon cinnamon has wonderful flavor compared to other cinnamons.
  • Collagen peptides– this is a tasteless way to add protein. Make sure to use a good brand. I like Further Foods Collagen.
  • Pumpkin pie spice– if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can use a combination of ground ginger, all spice, cloves and cinnamon to make a similar concoction.
  • Maple sugar– you could also use brown sugar or coconut sugar.
