Pumpkin Pecan Pie Oatmeal

Oatmeal lovers, this one is for you!  What a wonderful start to a crisp autumn morning.

INGREDIENTS
1 cup old fashioned oats, not quick cook
1 Tbs whole flax seeds, optional
2 1/2 Tbs brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp butter, softened
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup pecans, chopped (optional)

Topping:
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
2 tsp butter, softened
1 Tbs brown sugar

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 4 individual sized ramekins. Set aside.  Combine the oats through salt in a medium sized bowl. Stir well. In a separate bowl, combine the vanilla, butter, pumpkin, and milk. Whisk thoroughly.  Pour the pumpkin mixture into the oats.  Stir until combined.  Divide mixture evenly between 4 individual sized ramekins. Place ramekins on a baking sheet (this makes it easier to move in and out of the oven.). Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes.  Meanwhile, combine the ingredients for the topping: chopped pecans, butter, and brown sugar.   After the oatmeal has baked for 10 minutes, remove and divide topping mixture evenly between the ramekins. Bake an additional 7 minutes.  Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
