  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the pumpkin puree, milk, raisins, pumpkin pie spice, and salt until smooth. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add the oatmeal, then turn down the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the oats are tender, about 8 minutes.
  3. Serve topped with pecans and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Chef Tips

If you do not have pumpkin pie spice, use ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg, and ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves.

To prepare in advance, combine all the ingredients, keep in the refrigerator overnight, and cook for just 3 to 5 minutes in the morning.
