Just as I promised in the last post, I give you Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal. Sounds too good to be healthy, right? Think again. You will feel like you're having dessert for breakfast. Check out the ingredients-modified from www.goodlifeeats.com.
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
picture from goodlifeeats.com. Isn't it fancy?
Ingredients (my simplified version)
1 packet cinnamon spice oatmeal (mine was lower sugar)
1/4 cup low-fat milk (could technically use water, like oatmeal is usually made)
1/8 tsp vanilla
1 tsp butter
2 Tbsp canned pumpkin/pumpkin puree
*2 Tbsp ground flax seed (optional)
*Chopped pecans/walnuts (optional)
Ingredients (original recipe)
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 allspice
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp butter, softened
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup milk
1) Mix oatmeal and milk/water together in a ramekin/small microwave-safe bowl
2) add vanilla, butter, pumpkin & flax (if using) and mix well
3) Place in microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds.
Stir well, top with pecans, if desired.
