pumpkin oats fail

I woke up feeling better this morning and kind of craving some pumpkin oats I’ve seen around.  Unfortunately, being sick means that cleaning is not the top of our priority list, so I had to clean for awhile before I got to the oats.

Dan made me one serving of oats and I combined that serving with half a cup of pumpkin, some allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger.  I didn’t have the exact proportions, so I tossed it all in.

intent to not have wasted all this food and all this time, I powered on and added some brown sugar and some chocolate chips.

It still doesn’t taste at all like pumpkins or pumpkin pie or anything of the sort.  But, at least it stopped tasting gross!  So, needless to say, I need your help.  Have you made pumpkin oats?  If so, please send the recipe! Please!
